Lottie Campbell, c.1888.    I would date this to the late 1880s because of the tail bodice, a style dating back to around 1883 but which remained popular until the 1890s. If you look at the back of the bodice, you can see it has tails that extend all the way down to the hem of the skirt.    Fingerless gloves.    Her hat looks like it has skyscrapers on it, which is probably not right but awesome.

Lottie Campbell, sister of Sylvester Perkins and Mary Ann James. This fashionable woman helps to illustrate the presence of Black pioneers in Utah, and the contribution of African Americans to the social fabric of the Territory and State.
