Pretty...


Those dresses are so pretty and the girls' hair is gorgeous! I know she is not, but the girl in the middle looks like she is winking at the camera and it makes me smile. I know, she's not, but still... very sweet.

Stand...


My family and I went to Gettysburg, PA and had a true "wet plate" photo taken. They used stands on all of us.......... As for the little boy looking uncomfortable, besides I am sure hating his outfit... those clamps on the stand actually HURT! They were twisted and then dug into our heads. OUCH! Once again, those Victorians were tougher than we are today! :-)

Lovely "Ladies"


This mother and daughter sure look like family! They both seem overly "sober." I wonder what happened to cause those expressions. I know that folks didn't typically smile in photos... but these two seem really, really serious.

Love this photo! For some reason I think of him as a minister but who knows.

I wonder...


I noticed that on the table is a photograph containing three people. I assume that it's this man and child (though younger) and the man's wife, whom is absent in the main photo. She must have passed away but they wanted to include her. Wish I knew the story!

Oh, it's killing me...


Don't you want to know the story of this man???? He seems so serious... so deep in thought. Wonder what he did, whom did he love, when he passed... what was he thinking. We'll never know so I guess it's up to us to make his backstory. I hope he had a good life... no matter how serious he looked.

Reminds me of...


Jane Eyre and Rochester... in later years. Rochester was quite older than Jane so I have always "assumed" that he would have passed before his beloved Jane. Sigh...

If you are able to enlarge the photo you can see that he was quite a handsome man. I am sure she missed him dearly and wanted a remembrance of them together. Quite lovely.

I know what you mean!


It is rather spooky how blue eyed or light eyed folks show up in these old photos. This summer my husband, son, and I went to Gettysburg, PA, USA. One of the things I saved my pennies for was to get an authentic Glass Plate Photo in the same process like they did in the day! It was AMAZING! They dressed us in American Civil War outfits (mine was actually more authentic than the boys' were, son's was pretty close as a drummer boy and hubby was a 3 star general... not too many of those guys, but they looked GREAT) and posed us as they would have done during the Victorian era... including using the POSING STANDS to hold our heads still! Woo Hoo! The craziest part was (is) that all three of us have blue eyes... and I guess mine are the lightest... you should see me in this photo... if you didn't know better you'd swear I was PM victim. LOL! I have what the photographer called "Crazy Wolf Eyes!" She was a wealth of information about the process (actually was able to see the photo develop), the Civil War, and the outfits folks wore back in the day. It was AMAZING fun! Oh, and I even had CDV's made!

Funny, after looking at how "dead" my blue eyes look I am going to be overly, extra careful looking at photos from the Victorian era... it might just be "Crazy Wolf Eyes" and not a PM photo! LOL!

BTW, I look a bit spooky too!

Hmm?


Is that a badger? Maybe a skunk? I know that people in any era tend to have odd pets (my great uncle had a pet ground hog and a friend of his had a skunk), but this seems an odd choice for a little child's pic. Maybe it's a "stuffed" animal? The eye looks odd. I also just noticed on the right side of the child someone is holding their little arm. Awww.

Oh, my Goodness!!


What a totally darling photo! Such a sweet little boy and his sweet little dog. It just brings a smile to my face... even though the lad looks a little less than happy himself. Still so sweet!
