Victorian Fashion Illustration: Ladies' Capes (Eaton's Catalog, 1901)

The past is a foreign country; they do things differently there.
L.P. Hartley, The Go-Between

Imagine being able to pay $3.50 for a black brocaded satin cape (with plainer trimmings) and a mere $12.00 for a black brocaded silk cape, lined with India silk, and trimmed with lace and silk ruching. Those were the good old days, right?

Here is an ineteresting page advertising ladies' capes in a 1901 catalog from T. Eaton Co., later known as Eaton's, a Canadian department store chain that was once the largest in the country.
