Thank you for sharing this wonderful pictures with us! Knitting always makes me feel all sentimental anyway and these pictures remind me way. What a great way to honor Veteran's Day/Remembrance Day!


Why don't we look like this anymore? Look how beautiful those women look, how graceful they are. Never mind their surely dreadful constricting undergarments, of course.

Thank you for showing us this window into the past. Wonderful.

Slobbily yours, Ann


I love old photos. What lovely clothes & good postures these ladies had. One of these days, when I have the time, I should photograph myself wearing an FO with a flowing skirt and high heels, sitting and knitting with good posture, of course. Thanks for sharing.


I love this post! What wonderful old photos! Thanks for sharing them!

PS: That ostrich plume blanket is going to be divine!


Dear everyone -- I'm glad you like the photos. I am fascinated with the way they are both antique and timely. Aside the knitting-group thing, of course -- look at Miss Farewell's bag, for instance. Sewn bag with rickrack trim -- shades of Backtack. And the knitted jacket she's wearing, and possibly Ethel Forgan's too -- knitted in garter stitch, unless I miss my guess.
