Ask Morgana 013

dressmakerThere have been two responses to my appeal for a photograph of one young woman kneeling, fixing another young woman’s crinoline. The first is over there to the right, and indeed it is a detail from the photograph I’m looking for! The sender says that she only has that cropped piece and a further one below, and has no idea where the rest of the photograph came from. It is definitely mid-nineteenth-century, judging by the dresses. Does anyone have the whole original?

Another correspondent sent a photograph which, although it wasn’t the ‘right’ one, is nonetheless interesting in its own right. That too is below.

Thank you for your interest so far, by the way, and don’t forget you may follow me on Twitter @MorganaSomer.
