Duane Smith models a historic Chicago Cubs baseball uniform at the Durango Heritage Celebration’s “Victorians & Edwardians at Play: How the West Was Fun” Fashion Show at the Henry Strater Theatre. Sweetie Marbury was dressed for a picnic in the park. Smith’s stalwart Cubs fandom was described by emcee Suzanne Parker as “misguided.”

Most of the ladies’ bathing dresses were wool, and when wet, weighed as much as 25 pounds. How much actual swimming went on is anybody’s guess.
