Oooooh that coat!

I have a carte de visite for you today.  The edge of the card is a gold beveled edge so that puts it at about 1885-92.  It is of three folks dressed in their finest clothes but perhaps they are not so very wealthy.

SAM_1237I suggest that they are not so very wealthy as the lady on the left has sleeves on that coat that are far too short.  And is it just me or are those buttons and pockets a bit wonky?  I like the style of the coat in spite of those flaws.  Straighten everything out and make the sleeves longer and it would be a nice coat.  She is much taller than her friend.  May be she was a tall woman who had difficulty getting things that fit her if she was buying off the rack or getting hand me downs.
