Not so up
Here we have two groupings: a woman with two children and a man carrying a rolled carpet and small barrel. Their clothing could be any time from 1850-1900 ish.
The woman wears a wonderful hat with bird and hat pins, a shawl and carries a reticule. She also carries a very unpleasant looking baby. Sorry about that – the face is not very appealing. The babe in arms wears a long dress (both sexes at the time did), a breach clout and a bonnet and is 1.5″ long. This group is dressed in their best as though on a day out to see others and to be seen – or even visiting the in-laws, perhaps.
The young girl seems a little more modern and appears to have come out of the house without a head covering or shawl! She has on a pinafore type dress with visible pocket.
The working man is in full working fig and has a waistcoat, muffler, bandy legs, flat cap, cigarette hanging from his lips and string holding up his trousers.
