It’s summer in the South and we’re all feeling the heat and the humidity. But, at least now modern technology allows us to escape indoors for some relief.  So, what about the pre air-conditioning days? Also, of course, fashion of the 18th and 19th century was quite different as well. Southern ladies, layered in their European finery, must surely have felt the heat – and humidity, just as we do today. But as fashion generally won out, women coped as well as they could through the long, hot summer. The Charleston Museum’s Textiles Curator, Jan Hiester is here to share with your some of the ways they managed.  Her first post is about feather (or “church”) fans.  To learn more (and stay posted for what’s next on Keeping Cool) check out our Blog!
