These are two crisp and clear cabinet cards of the late 19th century showing fashions and accessories of the era. The older lady wears a lace cap and jabot and a prominent watch chain passing to a pocket on her bodice. In her right hand she is holding an open lorgnette. The photographer is Francis R. Elwell, MA of London. The other cabinet card shows a couple; the gentleman is seated and he sports a watch chain on his vest which is looped around the buttonhole with a pendant fob. The lady’s accessories are quite interesting as her watch chain passes to an obvious watch pocket on her bodice and she is wearing pince-nez glasses. She is also wearing an elaborate lace collar and a decorative hat. The photographer is Hanlon's Studio, Worcester. Both these images are very crisp and the condition is very good although the photograph of the older lady does have creases at the top most obvious on the left hand side (see image). These two images give a fascinating insight into the dress and accessories of the later 19th century.
