As we embark on the year that commemorates the 100-year anniversary of the sinking of the titanic, there will be lots of looking back at Edwardian times. I thought I would put together a post of some lovely scans from McCall's magazines of the 1910's. Hope you enjoy!

More 1910's McCall's resources:
- A story from the April 1916 McCall's Magazine on auto-camping across the United States from The Vintage Traveler (a fabulous blog and fellow vintage pattern lover!) Lizzie explains ... From Coast to Coast, A Nine-Thousand-Mile Vacation for Two for $350. The story is the first person account of Beatrice Backus and her teacher husband’s decision to drive from Massachusetts to San Francisco during his summer break. In 1916 the automobile was still relatively new, and many parts of the country did not have any paved roads. There was no highway system, no AAA, no reliable maps for many places. But that did not stop these intrepid travelers who decided to auto-camp their way across the country and back.
