Decidedly Different Dancers

I found these photos on the Library of Congress web site, the first woman was labeled "society dancer":
The next woman was decidedly of a different society all together:
The last one seemed to be a little of both and I think that's why I like her best:
It's fun to imagine all 3 at a dinner party, I still think I'd find the conversation of the 3rd woman the ost interesting however it appears that they would all have fascinating stories to tell...

Women in Hats

I found these on the Library of Congress web site, I absolutely love that in this day and age one can simply type into a search engine a key phrase (such as "large hat") and a thousand images instantly leap to life on the screen right here at home.

Much less that a creatures such as myself eating a bagel, still in my jammies at noon time, would be the one picking through images of thier finery...
