Judging by the popular fringed bangs I’d guess this card is another 1880s card. It also could be 1890s is you look at the huge sleeves.
Nice to see a gal that has some heft to her. You start to think all Victorian ladies had 20 inch waists without some contrary proof! This lady has very nice eyes, an oval brooch at the throat. I like the big bows at her shoulders and the fringed lace on the front of her bodice.
The card it self has some minor damage with the glue that holds the photo to the card stock having let go on one side. Anyone know if I’ll be wrecking it if I reglue it?
Crewkerne and Chard are towns southwest of London England. My guess is the Beach Brothers had studios in both towns and to save money, had card stock made for both studios. That, or they travelled between the two towns with a wagon. I’ve contacted a fellow blogger who has some knowledge about photographers in England and I’m hoping for some facts from that source. I’ll keep you posted.
