1908 photograph of four sisters from Winchester, Virginia
A cute 1908 photograph of four sisters from Winchester, Virginia. Note the big bows in the hair. This is the origin of the term “flapper,” because big bows like this flapped in the breeze. When these girls grew up, they’d be the flappers of the 1920s because of this term from their youth.
