News From The Past // 1878 ...1879 ... 1888

what is a lady wearing in berlin ... sateen and silk

actress sentenced to 3 months of prison, because of frivolous stage costumes

the newest beach wear ...
a couple of weeks ago i found the book 'kinder, wie die zeit vergeht' on ebay. it's a collection of the 'newest news from the past 100 years' from the berlin newspaper 'berliner zeitung-bz'. the book is from 1977, it's as old as i am. yes, old. 
reading the articles is so fun, that i decided to share once in a while some news from the past with you guys ... as this newspaper is written in german it's not that exciting for the non-german-speaking readers. nonetheless i hope you enjoy the pictures.
today i have some news from the late 19th century for you ...

Isn't it incredible? historical fashion is amazing and also mind boggling, the first picture! how were you meant to stand up and imagine being imprisoned for a frivolous stage costume! fabulous post though, I loved it! x x x

Awesome online find! That was quite the revealing ensemble indeed. To think that it landed her actual jail time. Wow, now that's suffering for one's art.
