A vintage Valentine portrait of two young sisters (circa 1900). This is a very Victorian style photograph. with soft vignetting around the edges, and man-made cherry blossom branches framing the subjects. Soft shadows from the branches, onto the background indicated "north light" (natural skylight from the north) studio lighting, typical of the era. Their chiffon dresses add to the style. Large-format negative (8x10) retouching has smoothed out all the skin blemishes - also typical of the era.
