C1890 - 1918 Photographs
Real Life Pictures of Ordinary People in Britain

By Pauline Weston Thomas for Fashion-Era.com

 

C1890 - 1918 Photographs Late Victorian and Edwardian
Real Life Pictures of Ordinary People in Britain

These are original photographs taken from our family albums and are of ordinary respectable people of good standing in the community wearing their best dress.  This is not fashion plate imagery, but real costume history - dress as it was worn.

Male occupations varied from district postmaster to farmer.  The dates fall loosely in the Belle Époque period to the First World War. Clothes would also have been handed down to younger children.  I will be adding dates when time permits. In the meantime please read my new section how to date a photograph here.

In many cases the styles would have lagged slightly behind the actual fashions of the day. Good clothes were meant to last and so well cared for clothes would have seen many seasons.
