The cherry on top of this outfit is displayed on a trade card handed out by a Weaver Organ and Piano Company dealer. See the rest of the outfit in the Arnold Galleries https://goo.gl/PhRxt1 as well as some info on the Organ Company itself and an opportunity for you if you live in York PA.
With her bonnet secured against the wind this young lady is off to gather the first wildflowers of the season. This card appears under the "Notables" tab in the Arnold Galleries https://goo.gl/jxwzLT along with other beautiful Woolson Spice Co. cards for Lion Coffee.
A Grand Hat for a Grand Occasion! As featured in the Arnold Galleries https://goo.gl/VxJpsO this chapeau was certainly well suited for the Grand opening of Mme. Demorest's Fashion Emporium. Click the image to enlarge. The image is free to print & share.
Doing triple duty in the Hats, Men's and Ladies Fashion section of the new Arnold Galleries https://goo.gl/M407BG the subject of this trade card actually had something to do with the merchant who distributed it. A rarity!
Make that old hat new again! With a little inspiration and the help of the White Sewing Machine Company https://goo.gl/UXJlWj you should be able to freshen up your spring wardrobe with little difficulty....
Ready for the social! Exclusive to this Collection is this fine example of 1800s haberdashery. The back of the card gives a street address or two, but no city. Do you know where this dealer was located? Please comment below if you do. Thanks!

Kathleen Leonard (Kathy): You are very welcome. So far I have found quiet a few Patton's emigrating here to the US from Ireland in the 1800's but am still looking.....Hope to relay great info....Thanks again..
Dapper, I'd say!https://goo.gl/mVfsx6 Lion Coffee's artists were ahead of their time again, using color to frame a duotone or black & white subject. While image manipulation programs do this easily today, for the lithographic printers of the 1800s this was innovative.
A feather in your cap! Unfortunately, the hat did nothing for headaches, or then again, maybe it did as much for them as the "Globe Pills" it advertised....From page 103 (http://goo.gl/chBTdy) of the Earl J. Arnold Advertising Card Collection -1885.
From http://goo.gl/C5O3Dl page 17 of the Earl J. Arnold Advertising Card Collection 1885, comes a sample of the hats displayed...in ads for corsets. Prominent women are featured. Make their acquaintance!
