Boy in fan-front dress


This boy's portrait is a fine example of an 1850's fan front dress for a child. The boat neck is edged in a lace or ribbon trim, as is the sleeve. The pattern shows that the sleeve is cut on bias. There are three rows of trim at the end of the sleeve. The boy wears his hair in ring curls of moderate length, but it is still parted on the side, showing that this is a boy child.

Three postmortem children


These three children are noted as having died from cholera. The photo was taken after their death, as shown by the closed eyes.

All three are wearing plaid from the, probably from the same bolt.

The large school slate shows a three column addition partly solved. The middle boy holds a large lump of chalk.

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.
