i do think in another life i would have been truly happy as a gentlelady of means traveling the world, studying mycology, painting scientific illustrations of mushrooms, wearing trousers, and getting into duels with men in my field who didn't appreciate my work

I saw a really nice black traveling dress at the museum yesterday in the train station display. The tour guide said it was a mourning gown, however I would like to ask if black was a better traveling color if one did not wish to have dirt stains stand out?
It could be, yeah! Dark colors, hard-wearing fabrics, and sometimes also small/busy prints were popular for early train travel, to- as you guessed -hide dirt.
Basically, with a few exceptions, it's all but impossible to say whether a dress was a purpose-made Mourning GownTM without provenance. Black gowns were popular for normal, non-mourning attire throughout most of the 19th century (I'm assuming this is mid-late 1800s since it's train-related?), and plenty could be used for mourning. Sometimes for later mourning if they had shiny or sparkly elements, or contrast colors, but still- double duty DID happen.
Unless the museum has provenance...it's anyone's guess whether this was a dedicated mourning gown or not.

Imagine you're a dog who wanted to be a human. So your wish is... kinda... granted, but you're forced to be a Victorian girl who's only allowed to play polite tennis and look quietly pretty.

Pros: I can now sing (badly) every word of a total of twenty two Gilbert and Sulivan songs.
Cons: no one cares.
