  3. Matt Albiani; Photographer

    Albiani is New England born and bred, and takes those east coast sensibilities with him on his travels, and in his work with his photographs. A fine example of this is in his first book of photographs, entitled LIFEGUARD ON DUTY, released by Antinous Press in June 2009. Albiani traveled for years across the U.S., and photographed ocean guards in their own environment.

    TYWKIWDBI: Origin of the term “flapper”

    “A young worker mends army uniforms in America. Her sailor suit-style is typical of childrenswear at the time. Boys would have worn a similar top, but with trousers. The bows which girls wore in their hair became known as ‘flappers’ because of the way they fell onto the head. The name would stick with this generation, as they grew up in the Twenties.”

    Scanned and quoted from the book “Decades of Fashion” by Harriet Worsley.  Posted at Beautiful Century, via Edwardian Era.
