Here’s a beautiful young woman with a regal bearing, seated in an ornate wicker settee. She wears a long sleeved blouse with a ruffled collar and cuffs, and what is called a suspender skirt, according to the very helpful website that we visit from time to time, Past Patterns. This type of skirt had a high waistline and is described as  “made with or without the plain suspenders or suspender bodice.”  It was popular from about 1915 – 1916.

Divided back, unused Real Photo Postcard. AZO stamp box. Circa 1915 – 1916.

Price:  $12.00
