Saturday, November 14, 1914: <<no entry>>
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
What was Grandma doing on this Saturday a hundred years ago today? Maybe she went out with friends and wore her new blue and black boucle coat.
Did Grandma ever wish that she had some furs? They were really popular in 1914.
It is interesting to see the new furs, soft scarfs, muffs, and coats of unbelievable lightness, with hats that harmonize and strike the right note.
