A grand old dame

This lady looks like she is modelling herself on Queen Victoria- and look at that tiny waist! Corsets had a lot to answer for!

    She has such an expression. I'm sure glad I missed the corset years!!

    I think she is showing off – that she has the wealth to afford a satin dress (probably a silk satin) with loads of trim – a cap that is a confection of velvet & lace and all that heavy jewelry. AND she was educated – she can read!
