Title

Cabinet Card of a Young Woman, ca. 1880

Date

ca. 1880

Description

This photograph was taken in Danbury, Connecticut at Folsom’s studio. The woman rests against the back of a textile-covered chair. She wears an ensemble that was fashionable from about 1878 to 1882. It consists of a lace-trimmed bodice that extends well below the waist; the skirt would have had a low bustle in the back. Her hair is worn tucked in a bun, and she sports the frizzy bangs popularized by the British actress Lily Langtry (1853-1929).
