Dating in the 1920s and now

High neck, long sleeves with rhinestone trim at cuffs and around "v" neckline. There is a tape inside the back of the skirt which gives the train the right shape. These laces continue into the bodice, with a side gold lame lace around the bustline. The interior bodice is nearly perfect with French seaming and tiny little bows.

I'd love to say it's in perfect condition, but the velvet has some crushing seen under certain lights in various areas. The only issues are tiny, like an ink mark on the mid-seam back of the skirt (a good drycleaner should be able to remove), the shredding of the silk at the inside hem of only one of the 4 layers (hardly worth mentioning as it can be removed if you want), wear at the skirt waist (not seen when worn), and only the MOST minor tiny other spots on skirt. Measures: 29" bust, 22" waist, 41" long from shoulder to hem in front, 70" long in back. This one is a basic silk jacket of the Gibson Girl era with that fabulous wide large collar front and back.

Five years later he was working for Loughead Aircraft (better known by its phonetically rebranded name, "Lockheed"), developing flying boats and designing wings during the First World War.

But he was also working on one of his own projects.

Before the Internet, there were personal ads, and before that, lonely shepherds carved detailed works of art into tree bark to communicate their longing for human contact.
