Again, since there are no posts from Julia I am adding some interesting images and links to historical sites pertaining to Julia’s time period. Since so many quilters have joined (since Bonnie Hunter linked Julia), I especially wanted to add items dealing with clothing and or quilts. I will add additional items until May 19th, when Julia will face the first in a series of tragic events in her life.

The Wisconsin Historical Museum has a beautiful exhibit of children’s clothing from the 1840’s, as well as several additional years. After I viewed this, I remembered that I have photographs of several items of clothing worn by young Julia Hasbrouck that is part of the Ulster County Historical Society‘s Collection.
