Here is an illustration of a Victorian lady modelling a Ladies’ Promenade Toilette which consists of a Ladies’ Double-Breasted Ripple Basque and a Circular Skirt. The outfit is floor length, with a full skirt, high neckline and large poufy sleeves. She is also wearing a lovely hat. The lady is carrying an umbrella in her right hand and holding a small wallet or perhaps a Victorian card holder in her left hand. The illustration is from the January 1896 issue of The Delineator magazine. Here is a black and white clip art version of the image. Click on images to enlarge.

I just want to say “thank you” for the free images…you work so hard to produce these for us…you also give us the b&w versions which requires some work to make it so and you also label the photos which helps me in finding the ones on my PC. I have also gone to your Etsy shop and am ordering some of your pages and will be a future customer also as these are best of best…thank you so much. I make junk journals and will be using them in my makings. Thanks.

Thank you, Sandy, for your kind words. I am happy to hear that you enjoy the work I do. Do you have a YouTube channel or Instagram account where you show your junk journals?
Sandy L. says
Yes my youtube is under the user name Sandra Louden…I have just started a few months ago making Junk journals but have made albums for several years…some are featured on my youtube but most are not…I am in process of making a junk journal right now with some of your images used in them…I will certainly give you credit for it….thanks again for your hard work!
Love this. Looks very similar to an image I bought in Rome a few years back, can’t recall the name of the flea market, it was one of those: https://www.romando.org/7-de-los-mejores-mercadillos-de-roma/
Anyhoo, I need to go through my stuff to try and find the damn postcard again, I think it was Parisian or something like that (this one’s french inspired, no?)
