Three Frenchwomen in fashionable outfits, WW1
Three Frenchwomen in fashionable outfits. High Empire waists, short full skirts and high hairstyles. Gingham dress: plain sailor collar, half belt and patch pockets; coats with wrapover fronts and high fur collars. The women are somewhat incongruously discussing the wartime coal supply crisis which took place in France in late 1917.
