Cathy's Wee Victorian Fashion Page
Last Updated 15 June 2000
In April of 1997, my co-author and friend, Kathy Hammel, sold me five Victorian fashion plates. Thus started my collection of hand-painted Victorian fashion plates. My dear friend, Olga Dugan, presented me with seven Victorian fashion plates in July 1997. I have added to the collection and now am the proud owner of some thirty Victorian fashion plates ranging from 1834 to 1898. In 1998, a fellow lover of British literature and wonderful correspondent of mine from England, Martin Porter, sent me a large number of fashion plates as a fantastic present. I am delighted to share some of my collection with those on the web.
