imaginative descriptions of the people, misses some of the dating details of
the mediums, describes colors in black and white images and mixes fashion
design cues. She has published a lot of nice images. That is why we bought the
book. She has acknowledged her errors when we discussed them. It's a learning
process for all of us.
My wife and I have a modest collection of images (several thousand), a
substantial reference library and a few dozen original garments. You need to
really 'listen" to what the image or original garment is "saying" when dating
or identifying. We are always happy to help folks ID or date images and
garments. we live in Michigan and welcome visitors. We also know "how much we
don't know" about photography of the mid-nineteenth century and are willing to
gain more education.
