long haired lady old picture hair style  

What a picture!  

Have you noticed how all the girls now want long hair, usually parted in the middle and hanging down over the chest?  Evidently, it was a style many years ago also.  I have loads of old pictures and came across this stunning photograph.

Condition is not the greatest.  On the back it gives the name of Mary Burton and is a post card, never mailed.  It seems to have been the favorite way to get a portrait.  Another thing I notice is that the photographs are often taken in front of some hanging item in the background as you see in this one.

And that skirt?  Definitely handmade.  I can tell by the hem!

I do love the old photographs.

The shoes are pretty interesting. They have bows with maybe pearls.

Girls of today wouldn't be willing to wear them.  How high heels have changed!!

That's an amazing picture, Barbara. The lady's hair is outstanding.

Outstanding, yes.  But not in a flattering way, in my opinion.

She was obviously very proud of her very long hair! Great photo!
