Booknews
Arranged by decades, the 272 photographs presented here show the clothing and hair-style details introduced during the last half of the 19th century for men, women, and children. The commentary by clothing historian Severa explores these details and also examines the material culture, expectations, and socioeconomic conditions that affected the clothing choices depicted. An amazingly detailed and thorough reference. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
