"The fascinating images, dating back more than 100 years, include two cute Ojibwa babies in beautifully decorated cradleboards (traditional baby carriers); Taqui, a Hopi snake priest bedecked in a huge silver necklace; and a family portrait of members of the Ute tribe looking proudly towards the camera."

Here are some fashions from the 1880's and 1890's shown at Fashion Institute of Technology.

Bustle Week: The particular proportions of bustle dresses varied throughout the 1870s and 1880s. Some bustles protruded sharply from the lower back, giving the silhouette a hard, angular look. Others used swags of fabric draped at the back or hips to lend a softer appearance.

#Onthisday in 1847, architect Charles Follen McKim was born. After working with renowned architect Henry Hobson Richardson, he would go on to be part of the hugely influential firm McKim, Mead, and White, who designed some of the most significant, beautiful American buildings and spaces of the era (and even to this day), including—the original Penn Station, The Morgan Library & Museum, the Washington Square Arch, the Brooklyn Museum, Madison Square Garden II, the main campus of Columbia University in the City of New York, many branches of the NYPL The New York Public Library, the Boston Public Library, the Agriculture Building at the 1893 World Columbian Exposition in Chicago, and many, many others. (Whew, what a list!)

Here are a few pics of some of their NYC projects, including Penn Station, the Morgan Library, the University Club, and Low Memorial Library, which McKim—notably more reserved than his famously energetic cohort Stanford White—took the lead on.
