Title:
Media Centennial Celebration. Women's Day. Open house at Media Women's Club
Date:
1950-06-08
Description:
"Approximately 250 women, many of them dressed in clothes of earlier years, gathered at the clubhouse to chat, drink tea, and view arts and crafts exhibits." (Chester Times, June 9, 1950). Some of these women may have appeared later on the parade float shown in ZM-3518. Of this woman, the newspaper wrote: "A variety of periods was represented in the ensemble of May Valentinis-Dee. She wore a purple velvet gown of 1876 vintage, white silk gloves that dated back to 1880, a veil from the Gay Nineties, and she carried a Venetian fan (1900) in one hand and a white embroidered parasol (1885) in the other." See other photos of this event, ZM-3488 to ZM-3493, inclusive.
