Old Photos of People Dressed In Old Timey Costume

I picked up this old, hand-tinted photo at the Roncesvalles Area Yard Sale on the weekend. It’s entitled “The Last of The Blossoms”. It’s not an accomplished photo, but I bought it because it was fifty cents and because it’s a photo from around 1900 of a woman a woman dressed in 1840s-style clothing. It’s like having your picture taken in pioneer costume at the CNE, and then, 100 years from now, somebody buying at a space yard sale.
