      1865 ball gown | Evening dress, 1865 From the Royal Armory and Hallwyl Museum

    • Sue Curtsinger

      Evening dress (ca. 1860’s). Pale pink moire satin. The skirt has been set into the deeply 'V' shaped bodice in large pleats. This allows the skirt to fan out into a fuller circumference. lace is draped into swags and secured with large bows around the lower half of the skirt. The neckline is shallow and broad to form a portrait-style neckline. The capped sleeves are almost hidden by the lace accent around the neckline. This gown has a 'brush train'. Very feminine.

      Evening dress ca. 1860’s From the ROYAL ARMORY AND HALLWYL MUSEUM. >> Beautiful This dress seriously reminds me of the pink dress from Disney's Cinderella! I wonder if this was the dress that inspired the illustrator! O.O

    Alice Roosevelt with her dog Leo. She smoked cigarettes in public, chewed gum, placed bets with bookies, rode in cars with men, stayed out late partying, and kept a pet snake named Emily Spinach, which she often wore wrapped around one arm and took to parties. Her father President Theodore Roosevelt once said of her “I can either run the country or I can attend to Alice, but I cannot possibly do both.” 1902

    Sidewalk Clock, New York ● 1947: This unique sidewalk clock, embedded by Barthman Jewelers on the corner of Broadway and Maiden Lane in 1898, is a hidden gem of New York’s former jewelry district. In 1946, it was estimated that 51,000 people unwittingly stepped on the clock between 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. each day. The clock, which was given a new face shortly after this picture was taken, still works today. (Ida Wyman/Columbus Museum of Art/© Ida Wyman)
