Tintype Tuesday - Stylish Young 1880's (Victorian Era) Woman with Hat

I love this tintype of a stylish young 1870's woman wearing bustled dress and hat.  She is leaning on a photographer's fake stone prop and is holding a handkerchief in her hand. Her dress has the typical fitted bodice and front buttons of the time and she is wearing a dark colored boater-type hat with what appears to be feathers on the top.  I love the not so typical bangs of her hairstyle.  She is quite lovely and I can't help wondering what she was thinking.

Update:  This one has been bothering me and I am changing the timeline to 1880's!


  1. There is so much complexity in dresses of that period. I love all the darting and seams in the bodice.

    1. Yes, dresses were quite complex and form fitting. It certainly helped to have a nice figure!

    1. I know, it's why I love this photo. It's rare to see this type of hairstyle in this time period.
