Sentimental Sunday - Seven Bored 1890's Women in Hats

Such a great shot, seven seemingly bored 1890's ladies posing in their finery for the camera.  Each of them is wearing a hat, all are different although most were quite common fashions of the times.  The lady in the very middle has an unusual hat, I don't think I've seen one like that before.

As is most common with tin types there is no identification of the subjects or the photographer.  It's such a shame, I would love to know the story of why these women were posing together and what the occasion was.  Another mystery most likely never solved.  


  1. This is a super photo. My first thought was the old musical "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers"! I can see them all dancing and singing, and waving hats!

  2. I hope I am not insulting anyone but according to my wife #2 from the left and the last one on the right look like men... I am not sure I agree with her.

  3. Any one of them could play the part of Miss Gulch in "Wizard of Oz." I LOVE the hand-to-cheek poses. I wonder if they could be members of a church missions society. They don't look like sisters.
