PRETTY WOMAN IN A FANCY DRESS IN SCHENECTADY, NEW YORK

A pretty woman sits in a wicker chair poses for her portrait at the Wheaton studio in Schenectady, New York. She appears pensive as she looks at the photographer. The woman is well dressed. Her blouse has “leg o mutton” sleeves. Such sleeves are voluminous around the biceps and shoulders while fitted at the lower arm and wrist. They became popular between 1825 and 1933. The style reappeared in fashion in the 1890’s and was gone by 1906. It was during the reemergnce of “leg o Mutton” sleeves that this photo was taken. The photographer of this image is Van B. Wheaton (1870-1948). The Anthony Photographic Bulletin (1897) reports Wheaton winning a medal at a photography exhibition. His son, Ivan P. Wheaton was a World War I aviator, race car driver, author, and photographer. This cabinet card portrait is in excellent condition. It also has excellent clarity (see scans).
