Barnstorming was a popular form of entertainment in the USA in the 1920s. Stunt pilots would perform tricks with airplanes. Sometimes individually or in groups called a flying circus. Barnstorming was the first major form of civil aviation in the history of flight.

Menswear inspired fashions worn on a trip to Egypt, 1920s. (by Striderv) I want to say that these are both knicker suits, but the pants on the left look like they might be jodhpurs rather than knickers (perhaps both are?). Which would make sense if they got to their destination via camels. Must wear joddies when you’re on camel, don’cherknow. Girl on left looks like she might be wearing a soft knockabout cloche (easy to roll and fold). The right is…straw?
