Victorian Photos of Regency Garments

By Jennie Chancey

Here is something quite unique. These photographs were taken in the late 1800s. The young woman pictured is wearing an 1820s dress with a “calash” bonnet (very typical of the late 18th century through the early 19th). Perhaps she is modeling what her grandmother wore? At any rate, it is a fascinating look at a Victorian modeling the fashions of a previous era!
