The London & Middlesex Branch invites you to join us on Saturday, October 1, 2022, at 10 a.m. for a Zoom presentation with speaker, Sarah Coates.
Old family photographs are fascinating and can be explored in different ways. Join Sarah Coates as she examines one aspect of these photographs – women’s clothing. We will take a look at some of the common styles seen in Canada using examples from North America and Western Europe (1880-1910). Although they cannot tell us everything, learning about these styles and silhouettes can be helpful to gain a greater understanding of the images and the time period they were taken in.
Sarah Coates, MA, has long been fascinated by historical fashions and the factors that influence their development. In 2013, she published the article “Identifying a Photograph’s Age Based on Women’s Fashion” in Families – Ontario Genealogy Society and completed her Masters paper exploring British women’s fashion from 1880-1883 in 2014. Sarah enjoys researching and recreating historical clothing from a variety of time periods.
