The Ladies of Hanbury Hall

Ladies of Hanbury Hall

These two lovely ladies in their period finery were kind enough to pose for me whilst I took a few images, even though it was cold and the wind was playing merry hell with their hair.

Whilst wandering around the hall, I had been shown a delicate little photograph album, with photos from the late eighteen hundreds – I remembered one image of the family cat, Han, from just before 1890. I’ve tried to get as close to the style of those images as I can with this one.
