    It's hard to tell but it looks like the little chap is dressed in Russian peasant clothes which were fairly fashionable amongst Russian middle and upper classes at this time wishing to reconnect with their roots.

    Excellent eye, dear Faith. Andrei Karelin was a Russian photographer, so it would make perfect sense if these two lovely people were Russian as well themselves. I don't know much about him beyond that though.

    It is incredible! I can't help but think, that the weight of that much hair (assuming it was all her natural hair - and given the era, I don't doubt that it very easily could have) might have caused her headaches though.

    yes bad headaches , i could not wear my hair like this....

    They did buy fake add-on hair, I recently pinned a period ad for it :)

    @Annette, I'll be sure to check it out, thanks! I've seen a few ads for hair pieces from the era (and earlier) too. It wouldn't be beyond the realm of possibility for the time especially that the hair seen here really was her own (lucky lady, if such was the case!).
