Description

The invention of photography in the nineteenth century provided a means of looking back into the not-too-distant past, and in this book the author makes use of this medium to share her interest in the clothes people wore. Covering the hundred years from 1900 to 1999, the book illustrates the clothes of 'ordinary' men, women and children through their own shnapshots and the work of local studio photographers.

Table of Contents
