I don't know if you've posted thisphoto before, PJM. I've seen it somewhere on-line.It's a really beautiful photograph.The man on the right in a bowler hat, fully dressed, sitting in theshade of an umbrella.The ladies umbrella so chic, and her stance, with face looking right, gives her an timeless look.A lot of painters were very interested in this type of scene,in the latter decades of the 19thcentury.
Our modern clothes are no where so picturesque, but much more comfortable.
Such a beautiful skirt and blouse. The pin tucks on the back of her blouse don't look like a lot, but it's a beautiful touch to break up the plain back. I can see some interesting tucks or embellishments along the seams of her skirt that I may steal for my next 1890s skirt. :-)
The clothing is beautiful, but it must have been hot and uncomfortable at the beach.I can barely stand it with a pair of shorts and bathing suit.
