Clara Watson Alber 1890's Unionville, Missouri
This is a cabinet card of Clara Watson Alber.
Her outfit is gorgeous! She is wearing a dark dress with a long, elaborate white lace collar and large, puffy sleeves. You can just make out the lovely beading on her sleeves and at the top of her skirt. She is accessorized with rings, a brooch, and a long necklace that is tucked behind a bow on her waist, probably so it wouldn't dangle too much. The hat that is beside her is adorned with ribbons, bows, flowers, and lace- just as much as the hat-maker could pile on! Propped up below the hat is a simple umbrella. I wonder if it was sunny or raining that day?
