Three Women on Skis, Snowy Mountains, New South Wales, ca. 1900

This post was originally published on this site

A little shorter than most skirts of the period, ca. 1900, these three women skiing in New South Wales are fashionably dressed for skiing in a socially acceptable manner. It looks as though they may have some form of bloomers or pants under their skirts which may have been both for modesty purposes as well as for warmth.
