1. A little girl and a young woman, probably her older sister judging by the red hair, wait by an iron fence in Édouard Manet's 1872-73 painting The Railway.
Little girl’s clothing in the early 1870s was often sleeveless and usually had very low cut necklines, sometimes even off the shoulder completely. In cold weather these dresses could be worn over blouses as jumpers.
