TEENAGE GIRL WEARING A PRETTY DRESS IN MILFORD, MASSACHUSETTS

addie

In 1889, a teenage girl put on her fanciest dress and travelled to the E. L. Temple studio in Milford, Massachusetts to have her portrait taken. She looked pretty in her dress which featured a striped top with striped extensions hanging down over her solid skirt. She was also wearing an unusual bow and a straw hat. The young lady certainly knew how to dress in such an attractive manner that people would notice. The reverse of this cabinet identifies the girl’s first name as being “Addie” and provides her age as “19”. The inscription also dates the photograph as being from 1889. The photographer of this image, E. L. Temple was the successor to Gould & Sears who formerly owned the photographic studio.

  1. Look how well the stripes on her sleeves match ! I wonder who was the brilliant seamstress who did such meticulous work.
