About this work

Also known as

Victorian crossdressing. Photograph album.


This album contains 35 cartes de visite photographs depicting private and theatrical female impersonation, 1850s-1890s. The majority of the black and white photographs have been hand-coloured, particularly over the dresses and accessories, in tones of pink, blue, green and purple. The album is contemporaneous with the photographs and were likely brought together in the 1890s.
