Pictures of 1800s young ladies and girls
This entry is part 19 of 20 in the series Cabinet Cards

I scanned some new cabinet cards! Here are some pictures of young ladies and children from approximately 1880-1900. These photos are exceptionally clear, and you can make out the texture of the young woman’s skirt and hat. In another photo, a young girl is wearing striped socks and holding a doll. You can see her pantaloons under her skirt. In yet another photo, a young woman stands at the end of a stairway, and it is hard to tell if she’s in a studio or in a house.

I LOVED the decorated cabinet card backs on the photos by Those James of Carlyle Illinois and Genelli of St. Louis.  I totally want to do some graphic manipulation in Photoshop with those….

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
