I was browsing through a 1913 copy of ‘L’Illustation’ – a French magazine that was very popular here during the early part of the 20th century. Most of the copies I have are during the Art Deco period of the late 1920′s, but just realized that in amongst the pile was this earlier magazine published just before the 1st World War started.
They certainly loved their corsets during this period – men and women seemed to be obsessed with obtaining a ‘svelt’ figure, no matter what the discomforts this entailed
Another corset advertisement above the ‘come and buy me’ car shot. Not sure what to make of that, I mean, the interior of that deluxe car looks very comfy and very spacious……….
Oh la la! You know what a reputation Parisians had during this epoch.
Shoes and Hats
Now What About a Nice Cup Of Tea?
Who needs a tea pot when you could buy a special cup and saucer with its own filter!
I’d love to find a set of china ware like this on my trips to the local antique markets here in France!
