Since I’m doing The 1888 Project I’ve been looking at gobs and gobs of CDVs and this one is one of my favorites I’ve come across.

This series of photos, done in a gif, is from the Metropolitan’s collection.

“Dancing a Waltz” (ca.1883-1886)

by Eadweard Muybridge  (American, born Great Britain, 1830–1904)

Here’s the page it comes from, Metropolitan Museum of Art

 What I love about this gif is that you can see the movement of the dress and you get a full turnaround to see what the other side of the dress looks like.

The couple also seems to be having a good time, which you don’t see often in antique photographs.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
