All in a Day’s Work: Dressed for Success
If you were a nanny in 1850, what would you wear to work? What if you were a doctor in 1928? All in a Day’s Work: Dressed for Success explores the official and unofficial uniforms people wore on the job and how they changed over time. This new exhibit features historic clothing and photographs from the mid-1800s through the late 1900s.
