Dressed to the 1918's

Well, aren't these two just turned out perfectly for an afternoon of wilderness hiking. That'll go well. Anyway we actually have St Nicholas Magazine, some issues older than the one pictured here. Mary Mapes Dodge of 'Hans Brinker or the Silver Skates' fame founded the magazine in 1873. Looks like Jack London was a regular contributor, and here are some of the illustrators she used: Arthur Rackham, Frederic Remington, N. C. Wyeth, and Howard Pyle . Classy. And fond of snappy dressers.
