CDV from the 1880s of a woman with three children - taken in either Helsingborg or Simrishamn (here spelt Cimbrishamn), in Skåne, southern Sweden. They seem to be quite well off, but their clothes are quite interesting. They are all well dressed, with a white collar on the youngest boy and the girl dressed in a very fashionable, short version of a grown-up dress. But at the same time, the necklace on the woman is of very local character - the only similar one I have been able to find on-line (with known provenance) is from eastern Skåne (where Simrishamn is located, which could be an indication that the photo actually was taken there).
