This weeks photo prompt was of Women in Parliament marching. I was going to just add one of my off topic items Ive been working on. Last night I was sorting many of the old photos I have. I need a system and could not find my plastic sleeves to put in spiral notebooks to have an easier way to find and go through things, so as I opened up one envelope, there I saw a picture that I felt spoke to me as a Sepia Saturday post.
On the Sepia Sat photo the women are all dressed with elaborate type breastplate designs or what have you on their dresses. With their hair pinned up or curls coming down on their head in the front and the back put up.
This is one my no name photos. No writing on back, and it seems the bottom corner is torn off where it may have said what state/place, etc. So all I have on the bottom left corner is “Tomlinson Bros” and nothing more, which Im sure was the photographer. After doing a quick google search, it appears there was one by that name in Hannibal, MO.
She looks almost as if she has some heavy breastplate action going with this dress! Not the usual Im used to seeing, anyone have any idea about this type of dress style? Think its a wedding photo as he is in a tux himself? What year do you suppose this is?
The dress seems so puffy and big, he cant even get too close to her due to the size of it! His shoulder is wedged into her shoulder poof.
Short and sweet this time, I have lots more detailed families to write on but none seemed the right fit this week. Until next time!
