More from Brant House


The most interesting room inside the Joseph Brant Museum was the fashion display. I love looking at the fashions of times gone by. These dresses are from the Edwardian Age.


The shoes are also fun to look at, although I don't know if people had more narrow feet back then or if they just had to live in pain all the time! Although I like taking a look back in time, I'm still glad I live in the modern days. For more signs, visit Signs, Signs.

What goes around comes around. A friend of mine has an antique shop. Around prom time students like to buy these old dresses for the prom dance.

Tanya said...

beautiful dresses. i remember in high school those types of shoes became popular, i had a pair in white!

VP said...

I liked you observation about the footwear!

Lowell said...

I'm with you about modern times and the so-called "good old days." Those shoes absolutely do not look very comfortable. And I wouldn't be caught dead in one of those dresses! ;-)

Re your comment: Nope, no appointment there...I once had a sleep test appointment but decided that I didn't want to do that so cancelled and have never been back!

I love fashion exhibits!!
the dresses are pretty

I think people did have smaller feet back then
as well as dealing with the pain
then again I'm not a high heels person at all

RedPat said...

I think everyone was smaller back then!

Prem said...

Those tiny narrow shoes always get to me too. Its fun to look at these kind of collection -- and I am certainly glad I don't have to dress like that!

Lois said...

The dresses are so pretty, but my feet hurt just looking at those shoes!

I have never been inside this museum and had no idea that they had fashions on display - especially fashions from the 20thC. I thought it would be all native and military memorabilia.
These dresses make me think of Upstairs Downstairs.

Jack said...

In the past few years, I have come across numerous exhibitions of old dresses just like these. I wonder why they are so popular.

Luna Miranda said...

they're lovely to look at. i feel lucky that i don't have to wear these, especially the boots.:p

Danielle said...

Being a jean and t-shirt gal....I would not have survived the fashion during this time.

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
