Bob Murray, as a c. 1860 gentleman in summer undress. He's wearing a brown cotton twill frock coat, black cotton twill broadfall trousers, a linen shirt, and a fashionable vest in his own "Murray of Atholl" tartan, worsted lined with silk. A black silk cravat, summer straw hat, and his gold watch and chain complete the outfit.


My daughter, aged 3, in her 1860 summer dress, a white cotton dimity back-fastening frock topped with a black and white plaid cotton pinafore apron. She wears a tiny strand of antique coral beads.



My daughter, aged 5, in a fashionable child's outfit of c. 1862. She wears a white cotton leno Garibaldi waist and a black cotton sateen skirt with braid trim, topped by a vest in the family tartan. A black velvet "Scot's bonnet" with black plumes, and a black velvet "aumoniere" purse with beads and tassel are her stylish accessories.

It is worn over a drill corset, bloomers, a camisole, a corded petticoat, hoop petticoat and flounced petticoat. She wears a Leghorn straw hat, a black "fascinator", and carries a black crocheted reticule trimmed with coal beads and a tassel.
