Fish Sailors Visiting

Fish Sailors Visiting

Photo was taken of sailors in an unidentified uniform probably in Abington Mass. between 1860 and 1870. Would like someone to identify and provide a date information on the uniforms they were wearing and the dresses worn by the women in the picture.



From the women's clothing, this is from about 1875, no later than 1876.
