Late 1800’s Trade Card with a Woman in a Yellow Dress

I really, really love the art on this Victorian era trade card, which was a shoe for a shoe store in Rochester, New York. I really think this looks more like a ‘wild, wild west’ outfit than one you would wear to sell shoes, but that’s fine. :) I’ll admit her bonnet with a bow is not very wild-westy, but that dress is gorgeous, and pretty darn low-cut for that era, don’t you think? This image is the trade card as it appears glued in my late 1800’s scrapbook:

I also created a Photoshopped version without the ad copy, in case you just love the lady and don’t care about the advertising:
