This week we will look at some couples. Valentines Day is this week so it only seems appropriate!
This CdV is from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
This CdV is most likely from the late 1860s or early 1870’s. The woman’s gown looks like it is a brocade of some sort and has dropped shoulders, the jacket is trimmed with tassels. Her ears are showing so that makes it the late 1860’s or 1870’s. The gentleman carries a Bowler/Derby Style Hat, they became popular in the 1850’s and were popular for men for about seventy years. The gentleman clothing is a miss match of styles..nothing seems to match in color or fabric. He carries something in his right hand but it is impossible to tell what it is.
I wonder if they were happy? Remember typically people did not smile for photos, because the exposure times were so long and because dental care was limited.
Thanks for stopping by. Do come again:)
