Guess the Celeb behind the Driving Garb (1906)

- May 9, 2012 in driving, fashion, femina, France, headwear, Images, Images-20th, Images-People, Images-Photography, Images: Miscellaneous, non-article

Images from a 1906 issue of the French women’s magazine Femina, the first of it’s kind in France and which is still going today. These strange array of pictures are from a competition in which the readers were asked to identify the famous female ‘artistes’ of the day obscured behind a bizarre variety of women’s driving headwear. We at the PDR are not having much luck getting a single one. Can you fare any better?
