This Vacant Lot for Sale - Comic Postcard

This Vacant Lot for Sale - Comic Postcard - Three rather eager young men (all highly optimistic - possibly a little out of their league) give a jolly greeting to a very stylish beauty passing them on the street. She is wearing a remarkable dyed ostrich feather hat, tight-fitting dress (Hobble skirt) and even a diamond and gold ankle band. Date: circa 1910s

Harem trousers replace the hobble skirt

From fetters to freedom: the hygienic harem replaces the horrible hobble skirt. Four radical designs from New York and Paris. The Tatler applauded this innovation in female attire, "Although the innovation is startling, we entirely approve the tendency to allow women to exercise their limbs to the full with freedom and decency." Date: February 1911
