A Couple in El Paso circa 1900

Recommended Posts

I have been having a blast going though the Ada Tharp Collection at the University of Texas-El Paso, here: https://bit.ly/3R8VoH4 . Check out this circa 1900 portrait of a couple in El Paso. I wonder if it's their wedding portrait. As y'all know I am a huge fan of great hats and his is certainly one of those. And can any of y'all tell me what his tie/kravatte is called? It seems like there's a special name for that style and I once knew it but, alas! no more. Her dress is awesome, too. Just super all the way around!
