The Way They Dressed— Or Didn’t

All of us who love antiques love the beauty in the faces long gone. We love seeing the ones tho came before whether they were stunning beauties in their youth or adorned with the grace that comes with years. We love seeing their clothes, their expressions.

Here are a few we’ve selected to feature tonight. Some are relatives of those who shared them with us. Others were found at shops or sales. Some are elaborately dressed. One is barely dressed at all. We hope they bring you not only smiles, but also an appreciation of ageless beauty and the way it is dressed…

Thanks go to Terry, Anne, Allen and Julia for sharing them with us.
