Last night, after trying fruitlessly to scan in the 1834 Godey's (it just doesn't lie flat - I might just transcribe the fashion descriptions), I decided to photograph the fashion images from one of my McCall's - it's too big for the scanner. And they are so gorgeous that I just have to share them. As usual, you can open them in a new tab to see them at full size, and I think they're mostly legible.
