I thought #StyleInTheStacks could use some dapper gentlemen, too!
This image is captioned ‘Skaters on the Reservoirs at La Villette (1813)’ and comes from Octave Uzanne’s “Fashion in Paris” published in 1898 by W. Heinemann. The book is in our Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum Library in New York City, though it’s also digitally available by searching the title at library.si.edu. Come to think of it, this would have made a great #LibraryWonderland post as well! ⛸
