Edwardian couple by a seaside backdrop

Tintype couple. Private Collection.

Tintype couple. Private Collection.

A quaint tintype of a couple posing in front of a seaside backdrop with the lighthouse behind the gent’s head. Her waist is extremely tiny, accentuated by the balloon sleeves of her blouse. Her small square hat is pinned high on her head. I’ve noticed ladies often posed with a handkerchief in hand.

He rolled a scarf around the neck, and he’s wearing a wide belt with a fob chain hanging low on the trousers. And that straw boater tilted far back is always good to see.
