Throwback Thursday "Greenwich Village Fashion"

Just a wonderful vintage photograph by Jessie Tarbox Beals of folks dressed pretty spiffy taken between 1917-1926. What amazing clothing, from the ladies shoes to the men's hats. Did you know Greenwich Village was considered bohemian by the mid-1910's?

Jessie Tarbox Beals (1870 – 1942) was an American photographer, the first published female photojournalist in the United States mostly known for her portraits of places such as Bohemian Greenwich Village.

The radicals who lived in Greenwich Village in the early 20th century rejected traditional structured socialization, preferring instead bohemian informality. Yet they often met in Village hangouts to discuss their ideas about revolution and art. These places, and the individuals that frequented them, earned the Village its reputation as America’s Left Bank and attracted tourists and those who wanted to live the bohemian lifestyle.
