I've always loved studying vintage fashion magazines to learn about styles and trends of the past, but lately I find myself drawn more to photographs of "real people." Instead of the perfectly styled fashion models, old snapshots tell us how people actually were dressing, just as today it would be a mistake to assume that all women look like they stepped out of the pages of Vogue.
I've been lucky in the photo department in the past few weeks, and have found quite a few that show women playing and vacationing. I'll be sharing these all on The Vintage Traveler in the next few weeks. Here's a little preview.
