Each item has been carefully selected, cropped and cleaned so it is easily viewable on your computer using Windows Slide Show or Windows Picture Manager. In addition, From Bustles to Flappers is fully searchable by year and topic. The years 1875 through 1925 were some of the most dramatic for women socially and politically. Not only did they go from non-voting to voting citizens, their roles in society also changed dramatically. Their popular image evolved from the Taylor-Made Woman to the Gibson Girl and then to the Flapper. From Bustles To Flappers takes you through these years and shows you that our great-grand-parents really weren’t that different from us. Their problems, their humor and their sexuality are all easily recognizable in these cartoons and illustrations. The road that women took during this time is also clearly visible. From the tightly-laced corseted woman of the 1870s to the relaxed flapper girl of the 1920s it was quite a journey. The Laughing Cat’s price for From Bustles to Flappers on compact disk is $14.95 including shipping and handling.
