Milford Library Presents “Shoes Through the Decades” via Zoom May 4 at 7pm
Are you curious about the footwear of years gone by? If so, join us as we explore the evolution of shoes from the reign of Queen Victoria through the decades of the 20th Century. We will discover the changes that occurred in footwear for women and men of the 19th and 20th centuries, emphasizing the influences that precipitated these changes. This presentation will be given by Karen Antonowicz, a specialist in historical fashion.
