The woman with the shopping basket is taken from a photograph of a scene in Londonâs Mile End Road in 1906. She is wearing a heavy woollen coat which could be in any of the darker shades. Her dress, too, is of a heavy, dark material. Her straw hat is coloured and decorated with flowers. The contents of her wicker basket are covered by a cloth. A white handkerchief, perhaps The normal summer dress treatment for the seated lady, but do not forget that being wealthy, her parasol would match the dress. The seated coachman and standing footman should be identical: black silk top hats, white cravats, navy or dark green coats, off-white breeches, black boots with brown tops and white gloves. The collars of the coats should be black.
