A unique look at the history of American style and fashion through the snapshot of one family

Shown here for the first time outside the attic in which they were stored for generations are more than 300 perfectly preserved garments and accessories, complemented by archival objects, family photographs, and letters. The book is packed with evocative descriptions of the garments' original owners; when the clothes were made or bought; and even where they were worn - all by members of the Roddis family of Marshfield, Wisconsin.

Author Jane Bradbury describes the joy of discovering the clothes when her aunt, Augusta Denton Roddis, showed her the astonishing collection. A remarkable resource, the book presents the garments and their designers in the context of the various eras in which they were created, from the turn of the twentieth century, spanning the 1920s and the Depression, through to the late 1990s. Beautifully designed, this is a must-have for every fashion enthusiast.
