Henley Railway Station, 1905

"Women walk from Henley railway station to watch the Regatta during the 1905 Season armed with parasols and shawls.

Summer day dresses were usually made in soft pastel colours such as lilac, white and pink, and these may have been made of print cotton.

Girls wore their hair long until they were eighteen, when it was swept up in combs and pins."

Scanned from "Decades of Fashion" by Harriet Worsley.
