(as told by Cecil Card for the Oral History Project)
— The Museum in the Streets —"First came the short white undershirt and underpants. Next came the vest with two rows of buttons the first of which held up the underpants, then the white blouse with a large Buster Brown collar tied with a very wide bow. The second row of buttons on the vest held up the little straight-legged pants. The stockings were long black cotton ones supported by long garters fastened at the top to the undervest. Most of the time about two inches of the garters showed below the pant legs. The shoes were patent leather and the hat a wide brimmed flat crown of light tan straw with 10 inches of black ribbon hanging down the back."
