Mother and son added to my collection

IMG_20170903_143126698I think this is a photo of a mother and son.  They were photographed by H. Larock in Lewiston Maine in the late 1880’s.  They are both sporting jewelry (watch and earrings) and fairly nice clothes so I’m thinking they are at least middle class.

I collect cards that have women’s clothing or hair clearly shown.  But, I can’t say this dress inspired me.  I like the stripes woven into the fabric but I’m not keen on the effect on the front of the bodice.  It makes it look like the dress doesn’t fit!  What really caught my attention was not the dress but the back of the card!  So pretty.  I hope you like it too!IMG_20170903_143136169
