A Woman Without a Hat







Victorian beach wear, modeled by a nineteenth century woman when modesty was the style of the day. It's tempting to look back and wonder "what were they thinking". Recognize that someday, somebody will be asking the same question about you.

Cousin Mollie mailed this old postcard to Mrs Fermor Stouffer of Greencastle Pennsylvania back in March 1909. Contrary to the risque pose featured on the front, the reverse has a short message about the improving health of a sick child in Five Forks Pa.
