Arranged by decades, the 272 photographs presented here show the clothing and hair-style details introduced during the last half of the 19th century for men, women, and children. The commentary by clothing historian Severa explores these details and also examines the material culture, expectations, and socioeconomic conditions that affected the clothing choices depicted. An amazingly detailed and thorough reference. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.  
  
 
  
Midwest Book Review 
  
This history of ordinary American fashion begins in 1840 and ends in 1900, spanning a period of time in which changing economics dictated clothing trends. Letters, diaries, period photos and Severa's own analysis provide in-depth and strong analysis of fashion trends and inconsistencies between class and fashion representation.
