Spiffy. But the fashions would've been decades out of date when they were put into the book. Kind of makes you wonder, doesn't it?

That is so cool! Godey's was the Vogue of its day. Lisa, I bet that someone just used an old piece of paper as a bookmark and that's what was at hand in the house for some reason. I do that all the time!
