Jane Austen Week In Bath

Woman in period costume during Jane Austen Week in Bath, England

Each year in September, the city of Bath is host to Jane Austen week. It’s when people from all over the world converge on the city to dress up in clothes of the period and promenade around.

On the first day of that week, 500 or so people in costume walk through the city from the Assembly Rooms and down into the heart of the town and back again. It was after they reached their destination that I spoke to this woman and took her photo.

She seems so pleased and happy to be there in period costume during Jane Austen Week. Her pleasure was infectious and I enjoyed photographing her.
