|The Tin Cup, 1864 by John George Brown|
|Canal Street Market, 1860 by Henry Mosler|
This painting of Canal Street Market has so much going on! Look at the aprons, the bonnets, the baskets! Its a look into bustling street scene that gives so much detail I encourage you to look at it large and see all of those wonderful details that Mosler included. Here we do see at least two wonderful sunbonnets in different styles.
|Engraving of a Laundress, Harper's Weekly Sept 1862.|
This is a war time engraving printed in Harper's Weekly, Sept 26, 1862. This laundress has her skirts pulled up around her and her sleeves either pushed up, or may even be a short sleeve dress. I love that her hair is coming loose and we can see those stray ends falling out! Makes me feel good about my hair being a mess while running round.
