"History Sandwiched In" is a new program series at the Geneva Historical Society featuring short presentations conducted on the first Wednesday of the month. They will be held during the workday lunch hour in spring and fall of 2020. The series will kick off with "Victorian Fashion from the Inside Out" on February 5, 2020 at 12:30 p.m.

The Historical Society's Director of Education, Anne Dealy, will discuss how the fashionable silhouette for women changed over the course of the 19th century, and how it was created using a variety of undergarments.  While dressing a mannequin in some of the key garments of the 1800s, she will discuss how the fashionable female silhouette shifted based on culture and technological innovations. The program will run approximately one hour in the Hucker Gallery at the Geneva History Museum. Participants are welcome to bring a bag lunch to eat during the program.

There are no fees for this presentation. "History Sandwiched In" will continue this spring with programs on March 4 and April 1.
