Self Portrait of Anna

Title

Self Portrait of Anna

Subject

Smith, Anna Clift

Description

My present costume is not as graceful, certainly, but far more comfy than if I wore skirts: sweater above and trousers - bicycle trousers - below, ending in felt stockings when the weather is cold, and low shoes when it is warm. In the house I wear a skirt, but when going out I put on either a rubber or canvas coat falling below the knees. High hip boots rubber complete this novel garb, of which I herewith give an illustration trusting you will recover from the shock.
