I wonder if 'she' was actually a 'he ::)

I did wonder too...she has a very masculine look.... I was thrown by the design on the backs which I knew didn't fit with the fashion of the pair which I thought was 1860s...but was reluctance to suggest a reprint. Thank heavens for Jim and his superior knowledge  :D

I'm glad not to be alone Treetotal. Being a life long admirer of the female form, her face' just doesn't  look right. I'd love that dress, swish, swish.

Another thing has been bugging me. Her dress could well be 1850's. I wonder if both the photographs are of the same person, say ten years or more apart.
