Wordless Wednesday - Turn-of-the-Century Fashionista

Oscara Francesca Bye, age 15 (c1903)


  Wordless Wednesday is a daily blogging prompt from GeneaBloggers.


  1. Such a pretty face. But judging by how those pleats are stretched out, I'd guess her back hurt. She looks like she's smuggling a pumpkin. I'm sorry, I don't know why I'm compelled to talk so ugly about your ancestor. I think the picture strikes me as funny even if it's not intended to be. You are welcome to come bash my ancestors whenever you feel like it. :-)

  2. LOL. I find the dress very funny, too, which is why I chose it today. Makes me laugh every time I look at it. I can't figure out why they thought that style was attractive.
