EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph, titled CC50_00694, transports us back in time to the late Victorian era at Somerville College in Oxford, Oxfordshire. The image showcases four elegant young women, dressed in fashionable attire of the time, engaged in a delightful tea party in the college grounds. The Victorian era, known for its rigid social norms and emphasis on education, is depicted here in a more relaxed and enjoyable moment. Tea parties were an essential aspect of college social life, providing an opportunity for students to connect, converse, and unwind from their academic pursuits. The women, adorned in high collared blouses, long skirts, and intricately designed hats, exude an air of sophistication and refinement. Their tea set, complete with delicate porcelain cups and saucers, adds to the elegant ambiance of the scene. The lush greenery and vibrant flowers in the background further emphasize the tranquility and beauty of the college grounds. Henry Taunt, a renowned photographer of the late 19th century, captured this moment in time with exceptional skill and attention to detail. His ability to preserve the essence of this tea party, and the fashionable attire of the women, offers us a glimpse into the social customs and leisure activities of the Victorian era. This photograph is a testament to the importance of education and social connections in the lives of these young women, as well as the significance of simple pleasures like a cup of tea in a beautiful setting. It serves as a reminder of the rich history and traditions that have shaped the fabric of Somerville College and the broader Oxford community.
