Victorian Fashions are the focus of the Avery House exhibits until September of next year. The current display (which ends November 21) is "Inside Out: The Art of Victorian Garment Construction." Beginning November 27, the exhibit will be "East Meets West: The Striffler Family Collection," featuring garments recently donated to the Poudre Landmarks Foundation by Fort Collins resident Carlota Striffler. The Avery House is open from 1-4 on Saturdays and Sundays. For a look at more vintage fashions, including the picture at left of Mattie Russ and Myrtle Freeman (circa 1900), visit the online fashion archive of the Fort Collins History Connection.

Happy Friday! Have a great weekend.
