Girl going gardening


This girl posed as if to go play in the garden. She has a painted bucket and a T handled toy garden spade.

Girl with doll


Tinting of this photo shows a purple dress on the little girl and a pink dress on her doll.

The girl has a fan-front dress with a boat neck edged with lace. Her short sleeves have lace edging as well. Her skirt has some trim applied at mid-thigh. She wears petticoats that provide some spring to the skirt, holding it out on the side while seated.

Her low shoes are fastened with a strap around the ankle. She wears socks extending to mid-calf.

Sisters in plaid


These two wealthy sisters appear to be from the 1860s. They are wearing identical dresses cut from the same bolt of silk plaid.

The dresses have an elaborately cut flounce on the skirt. They appear to be worn with a small hoop skirt. The detailing on the bodice is unusual, with saw-tooth edges that are overcast. Embroidered cuff details are apparent. The dresses have thin band collars.

The girls are wearing rather high boots with black button side closures and white stockings.

Two Sisters

Two SistersTwo Sisters
These girls are most likely sisters. They are well-fed and carefully dressed. They both wear frocks with boat necks.

The little girl on the right has heavily curled long hair, parted in the middle. Her striped dress has flounced short sleeves, and a contrasting set of flounces to the skirt. Her lace pantalettes peak out below the hem of the skirt. Her stockings may be silk. They are wrinkling at the lower legs and ankles. Her shoes have contrasting uppers that are button fastened at the sides.

Little girl with Mary Janes


This little girl (her hair is parted in the center) wears a necklace. There is a fabric detail to the sleeve caps. Her dress is boat-necked and worn low, as was true for children's dresses generally.

She has "Mary Jane" style shoes fastened with a strap. Her hairstyle shows pin curls at the forehead.

Little boy with boots

This little boy is wearing a dress because he is too young to be "breeched." We know he's a boy because of the part on the right side of his head.

The dress is sleeveless. He has a lace petticoat showing.

This is a great example of children's shoes. The rather thin soles are shown well. The uppers seem to be a thin and flexible. It appears that the shoes are fastened with laces, but no eyelets are seen.
