I saw the shawl, while on vacation. I actually don't recall what city I was in, but it was definitely in a Rippley's Believe it or Not! Several years later I found a crafty blog, with a small thumbnail of the two gowns. I did some searching and found out that the photo had come from an old catalogue from the Cora Ginsburg Collection.
SPECIAL THANKS:To The Cora Ginsburg (LLC) Collection, who kindly supplied me with the text attached to the picture.
