An unidentified woman, believed to be part of the Hill or Silcock families. Photographer: W. Davis, Photographer, Nelson.

The dress has very distinctive wide sleeves with lace undersleeves or false sleeves and a matching collar. The bodice has sloping shoulders. The skirt of the dress is wide and probably crinoline. This style of dress was popular around the mid-late 1800s.
