VICTORIAN BEAUTY ASKS “DO YOU THINK I’M SEXY?” IN GREAT YARMOUTH, ENGLAND

A Victorian beauty poses for her portrait in Great Yarmouth, England. She certainly has chosen a provocative pose. The young woman may be a stage actress or dancer. She is not helping the stereotypical  image of female stage performers who were viewed by much of the public as equivalent to prostitutes.  This  risqué  (for the era) image was photographed by Tilley Brothers studio. The photographers were successors to Boughton and Sons. Great Yarmouth is a coastal town in Norfolk, England. It has been a seaside resort since 1760.
