Willennar Genealogy Center’s collection is full of Throwback Thursday potential, so let’s get our #TBT on!
Today for Throwback Thursday & Women’s History Month we’re featuring a short visual history of women’s fashion in the United States.
The clippings featured in the slideshow below were all scanned from a scrapbook of women’s fashions, originally owned by Dr. Bonnell Souder of Auburn. The style illustrations she cut and pasted into this book range from the voluminous, floor-length frocks of the early 1800s to the slimmer, draping styles of the 1930s—and all the bonnets, bustles, and other details that came somewhere in between.
