What were they wearing during the Roaring 20s? This chic collection presents a comprehensive view of Jazz Age fashions with hundreds of sepia-tone illustrations and captions.

For the ladies, the catalog abounds in ""rage of Paris"" chemise dresses, feather-trimmed cloche hats, and casual wear. Gentlemen's suits appear here as well, along with attire for work and leisure and children's clothes for school, play, and special occasions.
