Photographs of Edwardian Scotland

One of my favorite sewing bloggers, Debi of My Happy Sewing Place, dug these up from The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS) and posted a few pictures on her blog. I decided to share some of my favorites on my blog, and you can see more photographs of Edwardian Scotland on the RCAHMS website.

    hi evangeline, i just wanted to drop a note and say your blog is one of my faves on the web! I <3 the Belle Epoque so much, and I write historical fiction, too. Keep up the great work, even if you doubt you touch others' lives. You really do. Beautiful work and it's amazing to come here. Wish it was the 1910's, for sure … :)

      @Ywea Thanks! I always grin when I see the exercise clothes worn by Edwardian women. They seem to defeat the purpose of being lose and active.
