Fashions from Peterson's Magazine: July 1854-June 1855
I recently acquired two volumes of Peterson's bound in a peculiar fashion. Instead of binding January-December of the same year together, these two bound July 1854-June 1855 and July 1855-June 1856. I found this quite interesting, as all of my other bound volumes have contained the same calendar year within. Oh well! Peterson's listed the table of contents for previous volumes every half-year, so I suppose the woman who owned these didn't want to wait until January to start collecting! Anyway, here are some of my favorite images from the volume of July 1854-June 1855. Feel free to share, but please cite my blog. And enjoy!
