Atlanta Fashions of the 1940's

Fashion was always an important factor in visiting downtown Atlanta in the early 1900's.  Typical was a stylish hat, furs and gloves. A lady was simply not dressed properly without these items.  One met their friends downtown, had lunch and attending the world of fantasy at the Fox Theatre.  Somewhere during the 1960's, style was thrown out of the window and the crowds looked like "bums" or "street people".  Sorry, that is just a fact.  It is much more fun to dress up and look nice.  You feel better about yourself.

Pictured is Estelle Chambliss Howard (my great-aunt). The family plantation went under after the War between the States and it was necesary to remove the children to Atlanta to find work.
