Gibson Girls and Miscellaneous Whatnot


Today’s edit of the film (and other projects) has led me to search for images of Gibson Girls. These were the turn of the 20th century feminine icons who Maria Elena Buszek calls “alternative, and very alternative and tomboyish models.”

And I came across this fabulous blog on the Gibson Girls and the woman who the New York Times called “the original Gibson Girl” (spoiler alert: the blog author debunks that claim).
