We think that because the photos are black and white, but really that Era was alive with color .....

I suspect Maria Ilseng had red hair, at least her daughter did, my grandmother.

I prefer the sepia photographs, I have quite a few of my ancestors and always think they look so much better than colour!

I've read a little bit about the development of colors back in the day. I think the more money you had, the more colorful you could dress. Because more dramatic colors came from over seas and cost much more than plain colors.

This was taken circa 1913. I love the clothes in this one.

Not umbrellas but parasols to keep the sun from their face. As to why, who knows.

Love the hats too. We really don't have "style" anymore do we? Now it's yoga pants and terrycloth headbands. Too bad. LOL

The umbrellas were used not only when it was raining but in the sun too. Remember back then tanned skin was not fashionable.. The paler a woman skin was the better and Freckles.. They were horrifying. LOL

Not umbrellas. Parasols. Umbrellas for rain, parasols for sun. A parasol wouldn't be waterproof.

Other than the breathtaking (and not in a good way) corsets, I could totally rock that era of dress. I would love to actually.

The seated woman is my great grandmother, Marie Ilseng, I believe the woman standing must be a friend of Marie.

These would have been ladies of substance. Their family had money, right? Cause my country kin aren't dressed like this in their photos.

Marie Ilseng came from a rather well off family, atleast compared to most from her region; Telemark, Norway. But not enough to live extravagant and over the top. But when photographed, I believe they normally put on their best clothes.

Great picture ! Im guessing they are wearing their second best dresses . The woman standings dress shows lots of wear . I like how they are no fuss dresses that are totally functional . Bu t Im looking at them from a reenactors point of view .

Sorry Laura but you must have amazing vision..... where abouts is the 'lots of wear' on the standing womans' dress? I can't see anything apart from the dress' pattern and texture. My eyes must be really bad. :/

Carol look where its buttoned up . Ive worn dresses from the 1830s and 1860s . When they get worn alot they dont stay as crisp as the should or hold their shape properly. I love the photo as it depicts working class women. Its a great research tool .πŸ˜ƒ

Beautiful!! Lucky you for having this!! It's not 1880s though; closer to 1890s... Hats were rather small in the 80s and the shoulders were natural; the young woman's clothing (she's more likely to represent the times) seems mid 90s to me.

I have a very Old cardboard pattern for a dress like this given to me about 35 years ago by one of the ladies in her 80"s who was a taylor and I have been meaning to donate it to FR Museum. It also had a little girls size pattern on the same dress.

I am fairly certain this is a post mortem photo. The way the bodies are unnaturally posed and they always used chairs and front props to pose the bodies. Not to be weird but I would be this is one.

The seated woman is my great grandmother, and the image is taken some years before she gave birth to my grandmother. It is not a postmortem picture.

The date for this picture had to be between 1890-1899. The sleeves on their dresses tells this. They were very popular in the 1890's but not in 1913 per Susan Crane's date. Many people have suggested a wide variance of dates from 1880-1913. Google it folks.

If you look closely at the floor you can see a stand just under the chair. This would be an indication of it being a post mortem photo. The woman on the right also appears to have a lifeless gaze or painted eyelids.

The lady sitting was my great grandmother, and she was alive when the picture was taken. My grandmother was not yet born at the time of this image.
