Fashionable Maine: early twentieth century clothing

Maine residents kept pace with the dramatic shift in women’s dress that occurred during the short number of years preceding and immediately following World War I. The long restrictive skirts, stiff collars, body molding corsets and formal behavior of earlier decades quickly faded away and the new straight, dropped waist easy-to-wear clothing gave mobility and freedom of movement in tune with the young independent women of the casual, post-war jazz age generation.

John Martin: Expert Observer

John Martin (1823-1904) of Bangor began in 1864 looking back at his life, family, business and recreational experiences and recording those events and thoughts -- with narrative and illustrations -- for his children.
