She's lovely! There's no date but the high neck and hairstyle say Edwardian? Circa 1905?

Could be anytime between 1890 and 1910, really, but 1905 seems a likely time frame!

How did those hairstyles work? I can’t imagine creating that hairdo. Was that just for special occasions or did women wear their hair like that every day? Did they do their own hair like that or have someone else do it?

I love the old photographs. Is there any course here in NYC that deals with old photographs? I attended a Swann Galleries photo auction last year, and it was wonderful, but I was a little lost when it came to the detailed technical descriptions.

Barbara Edmondson Those high collars would truly make me crazy during summer. Anything touching my neck makes me feel like I cannot breathe!
Winter it’s a whole different story!

The Edwardian era was from 1901 to 1910 when King Edward died, but the styles were still in transition for another couple or so years.

This lady's hair and clothes styles look like the first half of the Edwardian period. By 1910, hairstyles were becoming less elaborate, and the necklines were changing as least for younger women. Many of the older (over 60 was elderly since the average lifespan for a woman was about 55 to 65 years) women still clung to the Victorian styles.

My maternal grandmother was married in 1893, and I have her wedding blouse...nothing fancy, and no doubt she wore it for other occasions because she was an immigrant in a farm family. The blouse has a high collar and some lace, but not as high as the one in the photo. She managed to live to the age of 66 despite having 10 kids!

My dad was born in the Edwardian era...1902.
