Anna Held, 1902

Anna Held, 1902, originally uploaded by Gatochy.

"This beauty queen (The book is wrong, she is Anna Held) hides under a lavish cape from 1902. Long coats and skating outfits were some-times topped with a short, matching cape thrown over the shoulders. This one may have been part of a tea gown ensemble -- long loose dresses and wraps women relaxed in, without corsets, before dinner."

Scanned and quoted from the book "Decades of Fashion" by Harriet Worsley.
