    It has a color band tint of violet across bottom where lays her corset which has been removed. What she is doing now, is taking down some straps. In those days because of some many articles of clothing to put on and take off--it took time to do that. A respectable woman had layers of stuff it was thought necessary to put on the body.
    A corset could not be worn till a girl was 18. Before then she was still considered a child.
    This Missy has her dress off and bundled behind her in the chair
    I wonder if this beautiful woman was a model? It may have been very daring in the day, due to the removed corset, but it was meant to be mailed as a postcard thru the system..
    Maybe discreetly in an envelope might have been an option? It was never posted as a card thru the system.
    I am not good judging what was risque and what wasn't--in the distant past--and I have seen things on postcards and mailed that clearly, to me anyway, seem really "iffy" for the times!( just post-turn of century).

      Can anyone read the signature between her feet in photo #4? Enlarge 2 times please. I think she may be "Somebody"--or it is the name of the photographer. Thanks!

      Do you think the dress is actually a 'bustle'? There are a lot of clothes(?), under things, on the floor around here feet. No luck here reading the name - sorry.

      I was wondering if that could be a bustle but I think the time period was earlier, 1880s? If the corset was not in the pile, it would be less tantalizing for the young men back when, It makes it more like "stripping" --- removed from the photo it would be less enticing to the young chaps.
      Thanks Gillian--your comments are welcomed.

      I'm wondering now if I have ever met a "respectable woman". LOL

      Lois, for the signature, I read Traut.
      She is charming !
      6:34 AM here, I'll have a better look later :-))
    7. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 3 years ago
      Y'all always think the worst. Maybe she is getting dressed ? After a bit of, - - whatever. LOL !
    8. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 3 years ago
      I think it's Trauly, Traus, or Traudy, The last letter is the odd one, and then maybe an underline. :^)
    9. kyratango kyratango, 3 years ago
      Lol Bb2!

      Bill, you may be right, last letter looks like an y :-)
    10. PostCardCollector PostCardCollector, 3 years ago
      blunderbuss2--IF she was getting dressed--her corset would have to come first--and it is on the floor.

      bill- I too think you have got it!! I found my powerful antique magnifying glass from France--I see clearly now the same writing, and I am not positive of the last letter either!! That is great! Again, my thanks to Bill-.

      You're always welcome PCC, with a 60" high def screen, and then magnified that signature is just under 12" long! :^)
