Mother and kids?  Looks like mom and girls have matching dresses.  Cute!

There is not much to go on for dating this card.  If I had to guess I’d say late 1870’s.  There is a lot detail on the skirts which was a popular thing to do in the 70’s.  The girls have the start of bangs but not the big frizzy ones that were popular in the 80’s   The card itself has rounded corners which started in the 70’s.  I’m puzzled by the yellow color of the card.  I’ve not seen or heard of that before.  Anyone else have any thoughts on that?

    WandaB you find the neatest things. Do you think the mom sewed their clothes? I eagerly await the rest of photo album. Thanks for sharing.

    • I would think that is possible. Maybe set up an assembly line of sorts. You could pay a dress maker to do the same as well. The details on the skirt are amazing. Who ever did them spent some time doing it!
