Women’s Fashions: 1860s-1920s

1860s: A fashion fold-out from the 1863 Godey’s Lady’s book, part of the Rose Hill Museum library collection.

In anticipation of our upcoming fashion show being held this month, we at the Bay Village Historical Society would like to share some pictures of interesting women’s fashions from the 1860s-1920s, that we have found in our collections.

You may see quite a few fashionable dresses and accessories any Sunday at the Rose Hill Museum from 2:00-4:30 p.m., especially with our current exhibition, "Beadwork: The Beauty of Small Things."

The pictures accompanying this article are not always on display and many are tucked away in our library and archives. More photos can be found on our Glimpse of the Past page at www.bayhistorical.com. Enjoy!
