19th Century Sports: cyclingBicycle Clothing
In the 1880s, cycling became a fad of major proportions in both the United States and Europe. By the 1890s, the "The Golden Age of Bicycles" had arrived. Bicycling clubs for both men and women flourished on both sides of the Atlantic, and touring and racing were the rage. Leggins, hat, gloves, tie—even the chatelaine bag—must match the costume.

History of the Bathing Suit
It was in the early 1800s that people began to flock to the beaches for seaside amusement; along with this new outdoor pastime came the need for a stylish garment for the privileged lady of fashion.

19th Century Sports: swimming1900s Bathing Suit
There were varieties of style and color in the new turn-of-the-century bathing suits. Women typically dressed in black, knee-length, puffed-sleeve wool dresses, often featuring a sailor collar, and worn over bloomers or drawers trimmed with ribbons and bows. The bathing costume was typically accessorized with long black stockings, lace-up bathing slippers, and fancy caps.

Bathing Machine
The proper etiquette for the Victorian sea-side was the use of the bathing machine. The bathing machine was like a sentry-box on wheels; it was about six feet in length and width, and about eight feet high, with a peaked roof. The use of this device was more strictly enforced for women who had to endure a variety of discomforts which far outweighed any possible compensation of a day at the sea. The men had the best of it; they were allowed to bathe in drawers, and could plunge off one of the small boats that often patrolled along the front of the beach.

Featured here are examples of blouses, coats, hats, and even corsets for the turn-of-the-century lady golfer.
