The Grand River Times, August, 1851
BLOOMERS.—On Saturday last, a young lady appeared in our streets, dressed in a bona fide "Bloomer." She was of course, the "observed of all observers," and favored us with a call, which compliment, was duly appreciated, and we could not but admire this neat and tasty costume ; made more attractive by the grace and ease with which the fair wearer promenaded the sidewalk. This is the first appearance of this style in our village, and is certainly a great improvement.
