Library Chic: National Library Week (via Of Another Fashion)

Of Another Fashion is a rich virtual repository of images of women who once occupied societal margins. Consequently, their sense fashion was also marginalized. Of Another Fashion has scanned the archives, collected family photos, and accepted contributions from readers to amass a collection that will honor women of color and their place in the annals of vintage fashion.

In honor of National Library Week the two women below are trailblazing librarians:
Lucille Baldwin Brown was the first Black public county librarian in Tallahassee, Florida.
In 1924 Vivian Gordon Harsh first African American librarian to work at the Chicago Public Library.
