Woman dressed in an outfit from the 1840s

contributed by QldPics, taken in 1840
(contact QldPics about this picture)

While this photograph was probably taken around the 1860s, the costume itself is much older, possibly 1840s. The woman is wearing a dark dress with a very full skirt, probably 'puffed out' with a crinoline. She is also wearing a lace shawl, and a bonnet, tied under her chin with a wide bow. Her hair is curled into ringlets.
