SONNENBERG MANSION AND GARDEN
Throughout the mansion there were manikins with period dresses. It certainly helped take us back to the days when the summer home was built.
They also had photographs taken in the early 1900's, showing how the house was decorated.
This is the minstrel gallery that overlooks the great hall. I can picture a small band playing while people are dancing below....
I loved the cutwork and embroidery on this summer outfit. It had a parasol to protect the wearer from the sun!
These dresses remind me of the Great Gatsby!
