Delightful Illustration(s)

Reading through the 1862-63 edition of The Englishwoman’s Domestic Magazine, I came across this delightful image. How nice to see three styles of hats grouped together in such a playful scene. These young ladies are of school age in a casual setting. Notice all the games being played around them.

This second image is of a depiction of Town and Country. This is a must read story“I knew she was quite a Bel in town, and must know all the fashions—not that I ever dress much in the fashion, for we are such very plain, countrified peple [sic] at Cudleychugh, and father never will let one have cloths different to the other farmers’ daughters.”
