Friday Fashion

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.

Just a reminder about the Fort Collins Stories Giveaway. Send in your Fort Collins story for a chance to win.

Happy Friday! Have a great weekend.

Friday Mystery Photo
Last week's picture was the fountain/birdbath thing in front of the Avery House.

Where in Fort Collins was this week's picture taken?


Jenny, something's wrong with the linking on today's (17th) post. The Twitter link took me to an almost blank page and I had to click on Home to get to the post. Each time I tried to leave a comment, I ended up back at that almost blank page. It's wacky, since things work fine at this older post.
