She’s gorgeous Neale. Some of those children’s shoes used to have metal soles, a bit like horse shoes. I used to have a pair in my collection. Grandma’s shoes do look quite long on her, but I think they look lovely with the frilly dress.  :)

I think they look too long as well, Ruskie.
I wonder how, or if, she walked in them? Maybe she just stood still and looked sweet. :D

I wonder if the boots had buttons which needed a tool like this to do up?

I’m sure she would have walked in those boots - they wouldn’t just be for show.  :)

Thanks Ruskie, those were the tools I was imagining. Getting dressed in those times was not a quick activity!

Thanks, Carol. She certainly has. I think you, too, and all the restorers have done wonderfully well on this one. It's such a pleasure to work for a poster like Neal who always gives really good scans and really good thanks to us all.  :D
