Woman in Cooktown, Queensland, 1880-1890.

This is one of my favourite Victorian era photographs. This young Australian woman is so pretty, and it’s one of the few portraits from the era where there’s no fussy hairstyle (those hideous curls they used to do at the tops of their heads!).

Taken in Queensland between 1880 and 1890.

The woman’s name is unknown.

    She is such a natural beauty. She would cause a sensation anywhere she would go. In a world full of plastic women that we live in today, she would definitely stand out as a natural, strikingly beautiful goddess.
