Life on Dutoit

Here's an amazing historic photo of Dutoit Street!

Notes from John....

Attached is a picture Jennifer Mueller Garwood shared with me of her cottage on Dutoit St.   Note the lovely porch...the house to the left of it that has recently been redone...and the house to the right of it with one shutter closed.  Note also the brick street and cool lamp post on the road (why did we ever let those go?!).  The child in the picture is Mr. Herman who lived in the house his whole life as some of you may know. 

Some things never change... see for yourself in St. Anne's Hill.

Fashion sense

Here's a fun little article from the DDN about how people dressed in victorian times.  An excerpt....

Victorian nightgowns were traditionally long and floating with lots of fabric and lace or ruffles. Up until the Victorian era, there had been no concept of clothes meant only for bedtime. Both men and women slept in the shifts or shirts they wore as underwear during the day. The wealthy might change them more frequently, but they were still dual-purpose garments. In the 19th century, increased prosperity and a new interest in hygiene combined to make nightclothes a necessity for those who could afford it.

We experience a slice of the victorian age every day, right here in St. Anne's Hill historic district!
