Lisa and I are a bit behind in our Point of Departure project. Below is the picture that she gave me for May. May's theme was "fashion" and I was supposed to make a collage with this picture from an old Eatons Department Store catalogue.
Of course I've seen many pictures of how people dressed a hundred years ago, but I still found the images extremely odd. The women seem to be bent at the waist. They look a little deformed and I found the ad somewhat creepy. I'm so glad we don't have to wear uncomfortable clothes these days. However, lots of people do anyways so maybe not much has changed. I felt an overwhelming desire to cut this picture up and it was almost too late to scan it. I did manage to reassemble it so you could see it.
I found these little boys on the back cover of an old book about crafts for boys. It was also a little creepy because two of the boys have little black moustaches. I didn't do that! Maybe some little boy who didn't like crafts did!!
