accidental 1880's silhouette

It was a lovely day in New York city, the weather was so nice that I took my jacket off as I walked along the High Line. I wanted to take some pictures so I tied the jacket around my waist. When I looked down and saw this.

Mid 1880's without a corset.


  1. The second time I looked that silhouette could also be a seal sitting on a pedestal balancing a ball on it's nose. Lady? Seal? I'm not sure now!

  2. Now you're in my neck of the woods! I sure hope you went to the garment district!!! If you're coming back I will send you to the really good places, not at street level!

  3. Imblebee I'm taking you up on your offer the next time I'm out!
