Mid-1890s Photo

By Jennie Chancey

This picture appears to be ca. 1895-1896. The skirt is slim and straight, reflecting a change that would carry over into the early part of the 20th century before giving way to a fuller sweep in the back around 1904. The silhouette is also still straight and slim rather than the later “S”-bend shape that came into vogue only a year or two later.
