Evening dress, Poiret, 1910. Silk and linen. One of Poiret's early designs. “His combination of historical recreation, as seen in the pleated collar, alongside the modern, such as the graphic bold horizontal stripes in the textile, began the freedom in clothing that is synonymous with the emancipation of women.” Metropolitan Museum of Art

Henry Alley at High Street, Mineral Point, Wisconsin, ca. 1900.  Three women contend with Mineral Point’s impressively hilly landscape as they ascend a board sidewalk to High Street. The street’s name—High Street, not Main Street—reflects the influence of the Cornish settlers who came to the community in the 1830s and 40s. “The High Street” is the common term for the main business street in British towns.  via: Glass Plate Negative Collection, Mineral Point Hist
