About this title


In the 19th century, people worked hard and wore practical clothing. Over forty color illustrations and photographs show how they dyed, spun, and wove wool and flax to make the cloth from which they sewed their clothes.

Taken from Chapter 10: Sportswear The first bathing suitsIn the 1860s doctors began promoting bathing in lakes and oceans as an aid to good health. The first bathing suits for women were made up of baggy trousers, over which a large, belted cotton shirt was worn. A net or bathing cap kept the hair in place. Men's bathing suits consisted of shorts and a short-sleeved shirt.
