I found this great sequence of images but could not manage to incorporate them into this week’s blog post. They are too tasty to pass up though, so enjoy!

The first four images are of London ladies demonstrating what it is like to dress in the wide steel cage crinolines popular in the 1860s.

This image (below) is of a young boy wearing a cage crinoline around his neck, circa 1860.

The next two images are from a Maison Close, which is french for “whorehouse”. Presumably, these images are of ladies of the evening dressing for their potential clientele.
