You trying to tell me you didn't hear that shriek? That was something trying to get out of its premature grave, and I don't want to be here when it does. - Phantom of the Paradise (1974)

Stunning photo! That really captures the look and ideals of the period, doesn’t it?

Wow, that's striking an unusual, isn't it? What's with the petticoat (is that what you call it?) hanging out the bottom? And the skyscraper hat? Was there any information with the photo?

There wasn't any info with the photo, (it was a Marie Claire article that I got the photos from).

With much searching, I found the source. It was on Getty.

"Woman in Cordoline Dress, 1916
(Original Caption) The Cordoline, An Improvement On The Crinoline. Photo Shows:- The Cordoline, Showing Lace Anklets. (Photo by Hulton-Deutsch/Hulton-Deutsch Collection/Corbis via Getty Images)"

Here is another angle of the photo. I think it's very crunchy looking.

Thanks for the info! :D It's certainly striking, that's for true. Actually it is pretty attractive aside from the hat, which to me is a little too witchy looking. :roll: :)

Yes, you’re right! That’s a good way to look at it.

But on the other hand if you imagine a brim on it...
“I’ll get you, my pretty and your little dog, too!” :shock: :)
