Free Printable Victorian Fashion History Illustration: When We Were Young, 1886

The worst part of holding the memories is not the pain. It's the loneliness of it.
Memories need to be shared.
Lois Lowry, The Giver

An antique black and white illustration from 1886 that shows three Victorian ladies sharing a memory of their childhood. An image of the three ladies as girls is shown in the drawing below the portraits of the ladies wearing their fancy hats. Both the drawings of the ladies and of the girls are enclosed within a frame of curving leaves and grasses. From my personal collection of La Mode Illustrée.
