Philipsborn, Fall-Winter 1909

... And with more rainclouds looming, it seems appropriate to go back to the beginning of last century and post some pictures of raincoats.  These utilitarian garments are smartly designed, though I suspect they wouldn't have looked quite so elegant in real life.  As for the hats the models are wearing - oh dear!   They appear most impractical as rain wear.  Can you imagine what would happen to those feathers in a downpour?
