Photo Number 1118

This is a photo from the third antique shop in Dorset Minnesota.
Four blondes Dorset 3
Four beautiful light haired gals..perhaps sisters.  This photo is most likely from around 1900..give or take a few years...edited to 1910 to 1912.   Two of them are wearing gowns that appear to be pigeon breasted. The gal on the left has beautiful embroidery trimming her gown.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)
From Charlotta:
All four of the young ladies being blondes provides a first impression of uniformity but there are several overlapping dress and hair styles represented. The beautiful and very conservatively-styled dresses of the three seated ladies are suggestive of the first decade of the twentieth-century. However, the lady who is standing in back is much more fashion-forward/radical in the style of her dress and especially in her post-1908 hairstyle that point more towards the period of 1909 to 1914. So my guess at a photograph date would be circa 1910-'12.
