1887 moving pic of woman

Postby ljt » Thu Aug 09, 2012 1:46 pm

Heather I found two very short moving pictures of a woman walking from 1887. For some reason I can not get them to post. Can I email them to you and you post?

Have you gotten this sorted yet? If not I'll be happy to give it a try.

I havn't heard from Heather. I tried to add attachment but it is too big. Can't find the info on where I got it from to just link it. It is two short videos one is a back view and one is a side view. she opens a parosole as she walks.

I like how it shows the hem length. Shorter than one would think. I have also used it to demonstrate the importance of enough petticoats to a few "one is enough" sorts.

Do you know where this was? Amazing, as Miss Cindy said!

I don't remember it was a link that lead to a link that posted it on tumbler. Usually I note where in my files but must not have. I believe it was an over seas site.

Thank you so much for posting. This is really informative.
Not only is it helpful to see the skirt length, but also her walk. She strides. I wouldn't have imagined that gait from looking at still pictures. The stills seem so restricted by the weight of the yardage, especially when captions read the fabric was wool or velvet.

Very interesting, also seeing the frame numbers flicking in the left hand corner, was this by any chance card numbers from a Victorian Mutoscope?

Just noticed the numbers I was too entranced watching how the dress moved. You're probably right about the origin I would think--crank those handles.
As for the shortness of the dress, it may have been to show the feet rather than a style statement.

Edited to add: Oops no this was done recently see the next post. Numbers were just a reference for whoever animated it.

I though I recognized this. Someone took an Eadweard Muybridge stop motion study and animated it. Very clever.

Sorry about the quality I couldn't upload a larger image. It's titled Woman Opening a Parasol, Plate 38. If you search for it or the photographer you should be able to find a better quality scan. Don't forget to check out his other studies such as a couple dancing or Victorian people performing every day tasks (both clothed and nude).
