The picture is a little "defomed" because I scanned it "askew" and tried to fix it by rotating it. No luck!
The picture is dated 1810 and the lady is inserting a busk in the corset while the maid tightens the laces at the back. At least, so the caption says! ;-)
- This picture also shows that women did wear drawers. (nfm) Marie-Bernadette 17:40:21 6/16/98 (0)
