The sun was shining and I discovered a vintage market just outside.
The Gods were smiling on me.
However it was what was inside that I really wanted to see. I stepped through the door and went back in time 100 years and got a glimpse of what people wore around the time of World War I.
Tea gowns, dinner gowns, day dresses. I was in gown heaven.
The gents weren't forgotten.
And I caught a peek of what lay beneath......
However things changed when war broke out and I may have donned a uniform like this.
Much different and a lot less comfortable than what we wore when I trained in the 1990's. Seeing this made me rather melancholy.
And then I entered the next room......
I wondered what happened to the men who wore these uniforms.
Did they come home?
I hope so.
I needed to lighten the mood.
And found shoes.
That's the ticket!
Then I discovered hats.
And sweet, but oddly disturbing photos...........................
