Shorpy Saturday – Cloak and Suit: 1912

By Jeffrey Buck

Fashion is constantly changing. It’s sometimes difficult to stay on top of what’s in and what’s out. Certain items may be hot for years other may become hot after being absent for years. It’s just how it is. What else has changed is the way we shop for clothing. Internet purchases are high and large departments stores are a thing of the past. With that said let’s take a peek into the past by seeing what a typical floor may have looked like in the women’s department in 1912 at Elliot, Taylor & Woolfenden.

Take a look at the photograph entitled “Cloak and Suit: 1912“:
