When I look at this dapper Victorian gent, one of Liesl's classic Sound of Music lines wafts into my mind to accompany this image, "Bachelor dandies, drinkers of brandies"

:::::::::::: Antique Photograph :::::::::::: Stunning portrait of a young woman with tremendous poise.

Two young sisters sport identical dresses, but not hairstyles in this elegant Victorian image, c. mid-19th C.

1860s dress - would love to see this in color. (Barb Moore has kindly let me know this is Empress Elizabeth "Sissi" of Austria.)

I love, love, love (!) this stylishly attired Victorian woman's gorgeous lace covered dress.

These types of business cards were given to men at train stations as they entered town to advertise houses of prostitution. These cards were in popular and open use until the 1930's. The women were called "Soiled Doves" in the Victorian era. During the Civil War there was such a huge epidemic of venereal disease that in one town the army quarantined "doves" on a river boat.

A pair of ethereally lovely fair haired Victorian sisters.

Looking every bit like a queen and two princesses, this image from 1875 depicts members of an (unidentified) aristocratic Italian noble family.

I am positively smitten with both of these lovely young Victorian women's dresses.
