Tuesday Teaser: The ‘New Look’ arrives in San Francisco (1947)

Sept 24, 1947: "That 'new look' came to Union Square today when O'Connor, Moffat staged an outdoor fashion show for a noon throng of fashion-conscious women. There were some men there, too. They came to see the comely models displaying the controversial 1947 fashions in dresses, and the controversial 1647 fashions worn by Linda Darnell in 'Forever Amber.' There was a band, a floral display, and pigeons - of course." (via the San Francisco History Center, San Francisco Public Library)
