  1. Hi Debbie,
    I am really enjoying your blog. I wanted to make a comment on this one because it brings me back to the black and white photographs I saw of my grandmother and her sisters wearing these fur coats. I remember asking Aunt Hortense once how they could afford fur coats when they had just gone out on their own and started working. She got mad and wouldn’t answer me! She must have thought that was a very rude question! Now that I think of it, she was right!

  2. I grew up in the late 40’s and 50’s. I’m trying to find the name of a coat that represent real fur. It was black but it wasn’t called a fake fur coat. Can anyone remember?
