Imagine


Imagine going off skiing dressed like this! This postcard was sent in 1913 and I think that the piste would probably be much busier nowadays. Some modern climbers actually went off climbing in old fashioned clothes and they weren’t as uncomfortable as you think they might have been. I remember hearing a radio interview and the climber said that the old fashioned clothes weren’t as bulky as modern ones.

danette, thank you for visiting. I haven't worn a skirt for nearly a year, not to mention for skiing!
