My mother, like most of the women of that era, would wear her newest mink or fox stole and her fancy hat worn "cocked" slightly to the left or right depending on the fashion trend that year. And, of course, all the ladies and little girls wore the most beautiful gloves.
The men wore their best suits, fabulous wool overcoats, and fancy black leather gloves. Their shoes would be polished to a mirror finish. Back then, it was a social faux pas for a man to appear in public hatless, so the men too wore their best Fedora or Trilby. It was a time of elegance and glamour.
I know everything looks better in hindsight, but when I look through old family pictures, I still see the beauty, grace, and elegance that existed then. Or maybe I am just impressed with the fact that there seemed to be enough fabric to make a complete dress or pair of pants! 😉😉😉
