A 1905 FASHION IN WALKING (COMMENT). My niece, Molly Lazar, sent me a wonderful comment on yesterday’s post on the Grecian Bend. It attached a reprint from the Pittsburgh Press 0f 1904 which includes an article which begins: “A new walk is coming in with the new year. It is already here, but it will take until the dawn of 1905 to become perfect in it.” The article compares the “walk of 1905” to the fashions of the past: “…in certain ways it resembles the Grecian bend which was the ambition of our mothers and grandmothers in 1870.” Molly asked: “I wonder when weird walks stopped being a fad?”
