The amount of fabric that went into those clothes...and so many of them were made especially for each woman...very few off-the-rack clothes. How the women survived in the heat I don't know!

I very much like this photograph. I just look at it and imagine the daily work these women (and/or the men) did, and the conversations, the accents. Wonderful

I can't imagine being a menopausal woman with hot flashes back in those days. I'm sure many of them fainted from the heat.

They wore corsets so tite some times they fainted but liked big butt bussles. N big shoulders just wanted tiny waists they set posed several minutes for cameras back then is why there were no smiles all facial muscles had remain still

Designed to make the waist look that much smaller, but if I had to carry around all that material and padding all the time, I truly would have the "vapors".

My goodness whoever designed clothes for women in those days didn't want women to be very comfortable or even nice looking. They had to wear those corsets too so they couldn't even breathe!

Magnus came to Australia from Denmark in about 1860 for the gold rush. He didn't find gold but was a successful farmer
