Opening in the Farrell Wilson House on July 15th- "Taking the Plunge" You can sea for yourself the evolution of swim wear through the 1930s. In the late 1800s, women were compelled to conceal their bodies so as to be “modest.” The top portion of the swimsuit hung low like a dress to hide the woman’s figure. Suits were made from heavy flannel fabric that was both opaque and sturdy enough to not rise with the water. At some sites, 19th-century women also had the luxury of using a bathing machine. These small, wheeled structures were dragged into shallow waters so a Victorian lady could prance around the ocean in complete privacy. #historyiscool #Sea4yourself City of Plano, Texas Government Visit Plano Tour Texas Texas Association of Museums

So excited to have historian Carolee Klimchock, visiting professor at UTD with a PhD from Yale featured at our June 55+ Senior program today- Carolee gave a facinating presentation about the culture of coach drivers during the Gilded Age.The Gilded Age in United States history is the late 19th century, from the 1870s to about 1900 Mark Twain was said to have coined the term "Gilded Age." By this, he meant that the period was glittering on the surface but corrupt underneath.Carolee's entertaining and very imformative presentation revealed how relationships between coachmen and their passengers resulted in public scandals.
