The Breakers, summer home to Cornelius Vanderbilt in the late 1800's. Eleven of these beautiful, HUGE mansions are preserved and available for touring in Newport, Rhode Island. This vintage photo was taken by moi. I took some of my first photographs on this vacation . I can't remember if the camera was given to me or just on loan for the vacation. I was older my parents would give me their old cameras when they "upgraded". The version above is a modification of a scan of the original seen below.

The rocks on the sides are considered part of the California Coastal National Monument.

From the little I've read about dating women's clothing I'm guessing this was the late 1880's-1890's. The straight skirt, length, narrow shoulder were some of the characteristics I tried to date.

After ducking into an antique store during a rained out Octoberfest I found this photo dated 1944.
I had to get it because well, she just looked so nice and friendly. After I got home I was so mad
I didn't get more so I did return several weeks later and I'll share those too eventually.
I love the vest and the two buttons at the waist.
This image is not dated but she is wearing the same outfit. I believe these are considered Large
Format Photography the negative being the size of the print, maybe taken with a 3A Folding
Pocket Camera? The image sizes are the roughly the same (3.25x5.5 and 3.1x5.5)
however printed on different paper.
