"you must retreat in order to advance"

So I am retreating...back to when women knew how to really dress it up....

Fox Furs-1910

to when you could be reminded of how small you were in the world
Banker's Row-Pittsburgh-1915
to when you had more choices to wet your imagination....

Zine Shop-1940

Ah, those were the days of fur and crisp new dollar bills and the magazines about people with nicknames like "The Shark"! Thanks for showing these. I was just in Pittsburgh, and that photo reminded me of a couple of streets that are still narrow, high, and cobble-stoned to this day.
