    I am so fortunate that my family documented our history through photographs and letters. I love this photo of my grandmother taken around 1915.

      So glad that Cracker Barrel does not have all of the family photos! Glad yours are saved! Nancy

      Me too CardinalLady! I have a glorious portrait of my great grandfather, Pop Louie, a handsome Frenchman who wore many hats in his hometown. I will post him one day soon.

      And there we see the fashion fad of the 18 inch waist, pulled tight as one could bear it, My grandmother was 4 mos pregnant and unaware , she fainted and the Dr, discovered it after unlacing!! We must admit--it made for a very "fine figure of a woman" back when. Sweet photo and so wonderful to have it!!

      I cannot imagine the pain they went through! I think they did a lot of fainting! Thanks for the comment PostCardCollector!

      I guess that is why every Victorian home had a handy "Fainting Couch"!
      That seems so nutty to us, doesn't it?? AND, --we ARE much tougher these days, --we just do it on the floor.

      And when my mom was young, most women wore corsets or girdles! Now, I don't know of anyone who owns one.

      Can you imagine women today--free and unfettered as birds being confined like that. I can't think of anyone wearing them . Looking really ghastly -but I guess some gents of yore found the laces & garters, and the rubber wiggle in girdle "sexy"
      Go figure. .
