Edwardian Motoring Duster w/goggles. c 1910-1915 Open cars still created dusty dirty atmospheres and country roads were often unmade. Loose topcoats in leather, or special motoring coats acted as protection from weather and cold. Oil smuts could be a problem so women wore thick face veils with their hats and even goggles.
