Sepia Saturday 191 - Victorian carte de visite (CDV)

Is it me or does Saturday come around quicker each week? This is of course a good thing as it means it's the weekend, but also means I have to get my brain engaged in other activity, like coming up with a post for Sepia Saturday. As the prompt says though, there's plenty in this week's post to choose from. My immediate thought was hats, but I did that for my blog post last week, so instead I'm going for facial hair and share a few carte de visite (CDV) that I acquired recently.

Sepia Saturday 190 - vintage postcards of Edwardian actresses in hats

A bit rushed, and a bit late this week, plus I couldn't quite match with the picnic theme for this week's Sepia Saturday but couldn't help notice the magnificent straw hats the ladies in the picture were wearing, so on a hat theme, here are a handful of Edwardian actresses with some pretty fine hats.
