  19. Who are these stylish ladies 19th century

    These two girls would appear to be sisters - they may have some connection with the name Dickson - probably from Scotland and possibly the Glasgow area - it would seem a pity if such a photograph should remain anonymous. You can see it at http://www.dun.org.uk/Hair.jpg Thanks
