[ARCHIVED] Did Someone Say... Lingerie?

Hornes Lingerie program flyer

Join local historian Sue Morris for her presentation of The Horne's Lingerie Lady.

On Tuesday, March 15 at 6:30 pm, we'll travel back in time for a look at what life was like for ladies a century ago. Sue Morris will examine the experiences of a local woman who traveled the world as a lingerie buyer for the Joseph Horne Company, a Pittsburgh department store.

The presentation will set the scene in 1920s Pittsburgh, covering Horne's early history, general department store history (especially as related to women workers), 1920s fashion and lingerie, and what the buyer would likely have seen on her trip to the Far East in 1919-1920.
