Jack is a sailor who lives to go to sea. A typical sailor, he is always broke and has been in seven jails in the last seven ports. The one girl he tries to impress the most is in London and his mates call her 'the Eskimo'. For two years, he approaches her every time he docks near London, and for two years, Joan rejects the expensive gifts he brings to her and ignores any and all advances he makes. She wants nothing to do with a sailor. When Jack uses trickery to convince Joan to marry him, Joan leaves him when she finds out the truth about his so called new life. There are rough seas ahead as Jack tries to get Joan to come back to him.

Fashions of a Decade: The 1990s By Anne McEvoy
2006 | 64 Pages | ISBN: 0816067252 | PDF | 9,4 MB

Although this is part of the Fashions of a Decade series, there is almost as much here about the decade as there is about the fashion. The excellent photographs and illustrations, many from ads and magazines of the era, emphasize what was being shown by designers and worn by everyday women, but the text also discusses what was going on in the world: the cold war, segregation, the Cuban Revolution, and the role of women in society. There is also a good deal of information about the new miracle fabrics, such as rayon, that were taking over the fashion industry.

"Fashions of a Decade: The 1940s" traces the mobilization of clothing trends as they marched across the war-ravaged world. Women began wearing outfits featuring wide, padded shoulders, a narrow waistline, thin hips, and a skirt that fell just below the knee, much in the image of a soldier's uniform, while men sported clothing shaped like an inverted triangle from shoulder to waist. Heavy shoes provided a counterbalance for both men and women, and hats remained popular; however, scarves for women began to replace the traditional head-covering. This revised, full-color volume offers a detailed reflection on the role fashion has played throughout this time period, and is a perfect reference for those students or general readers who are interested in how history and culture has affected fashion through the years.
