Nice Discussion of the 1920s, 30s & 40s - Some Pictures
on January 10, 2011
I enjoyed the text of this book. The pictures are limited to primarily donated costumes owned by an Oregon Community Theater. The collection is almost exclusively evening wear and suits. No every day clothes and very few accessories. Clothing is shown on actual people.
The author does share a few construction details that will help in distinguishing between the decades. This would be a good introduction but not a lot of detail. You will need other books to get a fuller view of the eras. I still recommend the 2 Ellie Laubner books as the best of their kind.
