Four Friends (1910s)

By Jennie Chancey

This is a lovely photograph of four friends posing in their everyday outfits. The gal standing at the back right has on a white lawn dress with tucks and is wearing a locket around her neck. The two ladies in front have on the plain, slimmer skirts of the early 1910s, but their “waists” (blouses) show the “pouter pigeon” bosom silhouette that came and went throughout the 1900s. Note the neat details on the skirt fronts–the triangular closure on the left-hand skirt and the tucks on the one at the right.
