Some images of Ada Lovelace, and some clothes I like to put here in in the comic.
Dress Date: ca. 1838
Dress | American | The Metropolitan Museum of Art
pair of tiny and narrow sized late 1860's lady's riding boots which were lined in white cotton and pink leather. They are field boot in style rather than the typical dress boot (so all you historical re-enactors out there who ride side saddle, field boots WERE worn then for riding!) and have square toed straight soles with spur rests on BOTH boots.
An extremely rare brown wool `Amazone' or riding habit, circa 1835-8
Ankle Boots These are a pair of woman's ankle boots, laced up the inside ankle. This practical footwear is a mix of fabric - blue and white check woven wool - and leather, with a black kid vamp to reinforce areas of wear. There is a small leather heel. The boots are well made and probably worn by a lady of the middle class. Date: 1840s The Museum of London
Augusta Ada King, Countess of Lovelace (10 December 1815 – 27 November 1852), born Augusta Ada Byron, was an English writer chiefly known for her work on Charles Babbage's early mechanical general-purpose computer, the analytical engine. Her notes on the engine include what is recognised as the first algorithm intended to be processed by a machine; as such she is sometimes portrayed in popular culture as the "World's First Computer Programmer".
The only photograph of her, sadly her face looks pinched with pain, shortly before her death. Contemporaries didn't think she resembled her father, which I find strange, as this looks to me extremely like the many images of Byron, especially the chin and eyebrows, and the straight nose. What do I know!
NOT Ada Lovelace! This is thought to be her daughter Anne, looking very demure. Same oval head and broad forehead.
