1864 Dagmar and first fiancé Nicholas ("Nixa")

This photo offers a cautionary tale to nostalgia trippers such as tea baggers in the USA - he died of meningitis in 1865 before the two could marry. Nostalgia is wonderful unless you have to live it.

Pagoda sleeves are so yesterday in 1864; Dagmar wears a light jacket and a trim floral hat in this 1864 photo.
