Fashion notes, Montreal, 1914

Montreal Daily Star, 15 September 1914, page 8

Sombre Colors for this Fall Seen in Shops

The concerted splendour of Montreal’s fashion shops was to be seen today for the first time, when seven of the leading style centres on St Catherine Street made their formal Autumn openings.  Despite war and sarkings of lean days to come this winter, Dame Fashion is no whit less giddy than she was last spring, for instance.

Her giddiness has taken the form of adopting sombre blacks and browns, however.  The hats and suits are a deliberate attempt at pomposity and soberness.  It is the garb of steppe-dwelling Cossack and moujik that has attracted the designer. There is much fur, and heavy woolly coats, and broadcloth redincote suits, with nothing but the glitter of an occasional jet metal button or ornament to relieve the depressing effect.

“Made in Canada”

If Russia supplied the casus agenda for the designers, it was an easy mode to bring to Canada.  That is why the “Made in Canada” cry of some of the [illegible] is quite in order, and stylish, besides being patriotic.  There is Hudson Bay [illegible] and Alaska wolf, and James’ Bay broad-tail to choose from.  Ermine and skunk betoken the north again, as do muskrat and mink, and silver fox.

In the evening dresses maize and pink and absinthe (that’s a new one, a delectable green shade) supplant former blazing tangoes and vermilions.

Hats bear old trimmings, from pheasants tails to such sized pansies and gilt flowers as never garden produced.  The hats are either tight-fitting cloches or enormous headgear a la Gainsborough.  There are some cocket hats to give a military air and all manner of drooping plumes as a[illegible] contrast.

[illegible] impression that the fashion makers were in[illegible] for the fall things when the war rumors [illegible] made Runneymede to Cromwell.  A stern sort of black and white season with some irresistible colors and geegaws bursting out of the austerity.

A Smart Costume

[illegible] The stuff is a broadcloth, pleated very mannishly in the back.  The padded [illegible] of butler-propriety descends well below the knees; in the front in style of cut-away which was expected, the goods tipple out into as effect, almost eastern.  The skirt flares full to the hips, and there is lace at the collar and cuffs.  Black buttons are arranged to tell at the skirt, the front end of the coat and the sleeves.

Afternoon coats at this store, most of which are in the redingote-tail style are short, while those for street wear are very long indeed.  Tete-de-negre, blue and tartans made in worsted or heavy tweed or rough furry cloth, like men’s great coats last year, are the basis for fall outdoor coats.  A corduroy, called golf-tan in the lexicography of new styles, is the same shade of green as tarnished copper.  It is cut with a cap and raglan sleeves.  The costume is distinctive.

An afternoon dress, canary silk bodice with a black crepe tunic, is another of Ogilvy’s best.  Tasselled sash, rows of little cloth-covered buttons, and a double-folded loop on the skirt, show an expert touch.

A noticeable hat is white satin, with a bandeau of some scraggly-hair fur around the bottom of the crown.  The hair is long, and laps over the side of the brim showing itself a contrast to the white material of the hat shape.

A Bonnie Cap

Hamilton’s has a bonnie close fitting Scotch cap, with sable fur on a mahogany colored velvet.  A fancy mount catches the fur in front. This is of silver filigree, wrought into a most wondrous rose.

A jet band encircles the vast expanse of a Gainsborough shape, and a jet buckle at the front, with a plume is the other ornamentation.

A brown velvet sailor hat is crowned with brown fur and has a gilded flower front and in the back.  A yellow poppy as big as a pond lily, adorns another hat.  Ostrich plumes are noticeable.  There are no ordinary hats.  All are either big or small by the extreme.

Brown chrome stripes in heave chiffon make an effective vest blouse.  There are pockets in front, fit to support the staidest of heavy gold watch chains. The blouse is about the most masculine garment shown for the ladies’ wear in any of the stores.

Military swagger is given to one of Hamilton’s costumes by the close collared coat with a pleated under tunic which gathers the hips into shapely contour. The skirt is balloon shape, the most popular.  Moss green is the color.

Louis Quinze Floor

The Louis Quinze Floor at Fairweather’s Ltd which is claimed as a unique departure in showing merchandise is in itself so imperious that the habits trailed over the floor fleur-de-lis in its carpet should be lovely, and they are.  Taste and practice have collected some distinctive models here.  The cut of a cape, the drapings of a bunched up skirt give one more to appreciate than to describe. There are even styles in corsetry, as Messrs Fairweathers will tell you.  Mde Galbraith of New York, samples an interesting disquisition on the uses of aids to form, and is here for the Fall opening.

There is much fur trimming on Fairweather’s hats.  A turban of black velvet has two ospreys effectively crossed. A chain of gold filigree about an inch wide, limits the top of another crown.  Big purple tassles set with a simple jet band on a black velvet sailor are attractive.

Milady’s muff this year must be shaped like a melon.  A variance is the Rugby football shape, which seems a similar design to the non-technical.  Fox is the fur to wear in a set, and skunk mole, chinchilla, Russian or Hudson Bay sable are a la mode. Seals and Persian lamb, mink and ermine, are the thing for fur coats.

Monkey Fur

The acquisition of monkey-fur to adorn the hats of Montreal women is the prize Goodwin’s lady buyer at Paris carried off when she crowded on the platform of one of the last trains to the sea-board.  Boxes and trunks were got through to England by dint of much persevering, and the stands and models and show-counters at Goodwin’s proclaimed Paris and the boulevards thereof.

Six quails spread their mottled wings and bodies over a brown velvet hat that is to adorn some graceful head.  Two parrots gaze at one another, over the jet mount of a black turban.  And between the birds comes the fur of the peanut loving monk, to serve as a graceful wavy bandeau on a pink satin sailor.

There is a little hat which comes to a velvet point at the front.  Inside the cockade is a cerise plush.  A long pheasant tail darts nearly two feet down over the ears, the daring hat looks peculiar.  Slouched over the eye, tilted almost to slipping off.  It is at once debonair and charming.  Mlle the Paris buyer insists that all the new hats should be worn so perched well over the forehead, with the plume or the silver rose, or what ornament there be, set at the one possible angle.  It is thus Chat they wear them in Par-ee.

“Battleship Grey”

“Battleship Grey” is a series of ominous little sheet-steel slivers, tempered and polished to glitter like jet. They certainly bristle like a British man-o-war, and incidentally are a real ornament to a hat.

That is one of the details in the “Made in Canada” infusion which Morgans have put into their opening. Midnight blue is a shade they introduce.  They revivify bottle green as facing in a cocky little cockate, and corinthe, a regular Omar Khayam of a color, is a luscious new wine-shade.  More huge pansies – these are purple ones, and some cream-yellow poppies with red pollen centres are features.

This is a Russian season, as the cloak and suit man at Morgan’s remarked.  Roman stripe in an under tunic, pleated beneath the broadcloth of the outer coat, is an impressive costume he has to show.  Coats are long, he said, and silk braid and velvet plentiful.  A basket-ribbed French serge catches the eye.  The suit is made into cape-sleeve affairs described as angel-wings in the lingo of the style salon.  Coats of ratine, tartans and tweeds show an assortment that speaks well for the mills of Canada.  Coats are long, half-belted, talled mannish.  Blanket cloth for children’s coats might be adopted by their elders.

The Native Models.

High-trimmed native models, with all the variety of ornament that the French styles offer, are predominant at Scroggie’s.  A black form with pink satin under-facing of the [illegible] and a keen-eyed jet bird between the wings. This is chic and effective.

A dun green is the body of another hat, with a tete-de-vegre feather bandeau.  The sparkle of jet relieved the lack of brilliance.  Ospreys are to be seen on several hats, and ostrich plumes are turned into service on a number of the season’s creations. Large artificial roses add a novel touch to some tight-fitting little turbans.

Russian capes and cloaks stand out in the Scroggie display of street wear.  One tunic tartan had a girdle of crushed black satin with silk tassels and a military collar effect.  In afternoon costumes the Medici  collar, often with a short coat and tight fitting skirt, is to be remembered.

Evening wear runs to maize and pink and blue shades.  Plum is very good, and of course, bottines must match whatever the tone of the dress color.  Scarves and yoke-satins are in the same delicate shades.

Heavy furry cloth seem the most popular for great coats.  Swooping curves or strict military angularity are varied in cut.

A Driscoll model at Dupuis Freres is one of the original costumes among all the fall openings.  This was of French broadcloth, tunic style. The trimming is fur, Alaska sable, and the habit is lined with broche satin.  A yoke in the skirt is of charmeuse silk, the very type of suit to go with a black turban, cerise-faced, which the living models wear with it.

There are some forty costumes paraded on living models for the benefits of Dupuis’ customers.  A honey-comb coat, trimmed with plush at the collar and cuffs attracts more than one inquiry.  The sleeves are raglan style and the coat is half-lined with satin.

The basque idea in evening dress is very popular here.  One charmeuse silk dress has the basque, with an effective belt at the back. With this is a wide-brimmed had, with three shaded ostrich feathers. The hat is Alice blue plush faced with silk and trimmed with a silver rose and a bandeau.

A black velvet sailor is faced with cerise satin under the brim.  Black and new middy flat trimming is used, and a cerise rose in front catches the crown. A plain silver filigree band encircled the top of the soft crown.

The entire store of Dupuis Freres is tastefully decorated for the opening.  An extensive display of furs and dress silks are particularly attractive.

Juvenile Court to Teach Manners, Montreal, 1917

Montreal Gazette, 6 jul 1917, page 5

Juvenile Court to Teach Manners

Drenching Young woman on street to bring stern rebuke

Too frolicsome boys

Boy left Toronto to be a Jockey in Montreal and Ended in court – promises did not materialize

It is a matter of opinion in Juvenile court circles that giving a young woman a public bath, and especially without notice, is not according to the usages taught in the best circles of society, and several young boys who lately forgot that fact are so informed, politely, but very firmly.  An indignant uncle figures prominently in this affair.  The story, as unfolded before the court yesterday, has much of the commonplace. It is related that a day or two ago a young woman was walking up St Alexander street when from the seventh storey of a building fronting on that street several boys dropped a paper bag upon her splendid new hat, one of the kind with lilies of the valley profusely enthroned upon it.  The bag was filled with water, and when it collided with the hat, the result was disastrous for the millinery, and the person of the wearer. It was a big bag, and the drenching corresponded.

Indignant at this treatment on the King’s Highway, the victim told her uncle, and the latter instituted some Sherlock Holmes enquiries and discovered the miscreants, and informed the Juvenile Court that he had solved the problem. The court, properly impressed, issued little billets doux to the boys in question, requesting the honour of their company in the morning. Probabilities are that the youngsters will be entertained with some remarks on decorum, and given a chance to repent. The authorities are determined that the streets shall be made safe for summer finery especially as the opportunity for its display is so short this year.

Another case, that had the attention of the Juvenile court yesterday is that of a boy of sixteen who was unearthed by a special constable of the CPR in a race horse car at the Windsor Station.  The story told by the boy is that he is a resident of Toronto, not in itself a serious matter but he left his mother’s home without permission to come to Montreal to be a jockey.  His story further adds that he was induced to do so by a race track man, who made him plenty of fine promises, but that when they reached Montreal told him to shift for himself as best he could.  The boy’s only idea was then to get to Toronto, and he chose the “no ticket” system.  The story is being investigated, as there appears to be several discrepancies in the telling.

In addition to these cases, the Juvenile court had the usual number of little affairs to dispose of.

Death of Sir Hugh Allan of Ravenscrag, 1882

Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald, 16 Dec 1882, page 4

The announcement on Monday last, of the death of Sir Hugh Allan, of Ravenscrag, Montreal, at 27 St Andrew’s Street, Edinburgh, will revive the interest of the natives of the Saltcoats seaboard in the career of a family whose name has become a household word on both sides of the Atlantic, and which must date its rise from the time when Alex Allan, the founder of the great “Allan Line” went down to Saltcoats to learn the trade of ship carpenter.  Like many of the other great mercantile and shipping firms in this country and America, that of the Allans has been the growth of a couple of generations, and the colossal proportions it has reached, are due to the conditions which are always dominant in such cases, the possession of that kind of courage which is know as enterprise, and which does not allow talent to be lost to the world, coupled with that unflagging industry which is somewhere said to be the true test of Nature’s nobility.  The first of the Allans connected with the sea was Alexander Allan, father of the late Sir Hugh Allan.  In his youth he learned to be a shoemaker in Kilmarnock, or rather, in its suburb of Riccarton, but luckily did not “Stick to his last”  His nature was too robust for such a monotonous calling.  Ship-building and the sea, so to speak, better suited his complaint and he went down to Saltcoats and learned to be a ship-carpenter.  On completing his apprenticeship he went to sea, and not long afterwards sailed as mate with the Late Capt John Wilson, whom many of our Saltcoats readers will remember in his old days as a bookseller in Dockhead Street.  He did not require to sail long as mate, for we hear of him being shortly after master of the brig, Hero, of Irvine, with the late Hugh Crawford, (father of Capt David Crawford of Clydeview, Irvine; and Clydeview, Ardrossan) as mate.  Mr Crawford succeeded him as master of the Hero, and our hero, Captain Allan, about this time, married into a family of the name of Crawford residing in Saltcoats.  The Crawfords occupied a snug little cottage in Castleweerock and daughter Jean took the fancy of Capt Allan, while his former mate, Capt Crawford was more than pleased with the charms of her sister Margaret, the result being that the two sisters were married to the two young skippers away back in the early years of the present century.  It will, perhaps, be news to many of the Irvine folks who are strong in the matter of local tradition, to learn that what may, in a sense, be called the first of the “Allan Line” of ships was built in the Irvine shipyard of Messrs Gilkison & Rankin. After quitting the brig Hero, the brig Jean (named probably after his wife) was built for Captain Allan, he being part owner.  If we remember the narrative, as it was told us, aright, the Gilkinsons of Irvine were also part owners; and, at all events, it was in this vessel, “The Jean” that Capt James Brown of Bogalde, brother of the Ex-Provist Brown, served his apprenticeship.  “The Jean” traded

[illegible]  Capt Allan’s next vessel was a brig, “The Favourite” and in it he made two voyages annually to Montreal.  “The Favourite” gave place in the course of time to the ship, “Canada” which he continued to command as captain until he retired from the sea.  The late James Allan, the eldest son of Captain Alexander Allan and Bryce Allan, a younger son, took up the North American trade after their father, the “Arabian” under command of Capt James Allan, making many voyages between Greenock and Montreal.  About the year 1839 Capt David Crawford of Clyde View, sailed with him (Capt James Allan) from the Clyde.  James, who was the oldest son, and Alexander, the youngest, eventually settled down in Glasgow as ship-owners, and Hugh who died the other day, Sir Hugh Allan (as above noticed), along with Andrew went into business as merchants in Montreal.  So successful were they that the former was reputed to be one of the richest, if not the richest man in Canada.  The Allans have numerous family connections in this part of the county (Agnes Crawford, wife of Jas McKie, the Kilmarnock publisher, being a cousin of the late Sir Hugh) and the natives of Saltcoats district cherish, with natural pride, the traditions of the Allan family, in common with those of other Saltcoats families who have earned distinction by “following the sea.”  Since the brig, “Jean,” left the slips in the Irvine ship yard, an immense change has taken place in the shipping trade, and old Captain Allan, who was a splendid type of the old school, it may be mentioned, stoutly stood out against the introduction of steam.  Not till after his death was it introduced into the Allan Line.  His sons, however, as their splendid fleet of ships testify, were not slow to take advantage of the new power, and adapt themselves to the new style of things.  The career of the Allan family, in both generations, is another illustration of the fact that “the hand of the diligent maketh rich” and of the other assurances, given on equally good authority, that “he that is diligent in business shall stand before kings.”

12th of July, Montreal, 1877

Montreal Daily Star, 12 July 1877, page 2

The Twelfth – Last Words

This is the Twelfth of July, the recognized anniversary of the Orangemen.  They intend commemorating it in a quiet, unobtrusive manner, by going to church and hearing a sermon.  They have made every concession asked of them by the public, and will display no insignia whatever.  They will offend, directly or indirectly, the prejudices of none and we therefore warn whoever may, in  spite of all that is done, be criminal enough to attack them, that the consequences will not be light.  We warn all persons disposed to violence, to beware of breaking the peace.

 

Montreal Daily Star, 13 July 1877, page 2

 

The Events of Yesterday

Upon the calmest consideration of the events of yesterday, and in view of the enormity of the disgrace cast  upon the fair name of Montreal, it is hard indeed, to coolly review the shameful disorders perpetuated under the very eye of authority, we cannot too strongly condemn the inaction which was observed from the first, by those in whose hands was reposed the care of the public safety.  Ample warning was given of the probabilities of the day, but no preparatory action, calculated to keep the streets clear and obviate the chances of a collision, were taken.  The Police force, as a fact was held back until after murder had been committed, and the mob held possession of the streets, and even then, when representative citizens waited upon the Mayor, and asked him if he had made any further arrangements for preserving the peace of the city, they were told “We are doing all we can to have good order preserved by the duly appointed civic force, the Police,” and when the Chief of Police, an officer whose hands appear to have been tied all day, stated positively that he needed military force to assist his limited organization, he was told by the Mayor that he was not inclined to call out the military. The deputation was treated cavalierly, the Police Superintendent snubbed, and all that was done was to send out a detective to see if the crowd were still in the streets.

The Mayor could not pretend that the elements of disorder had not been apparent from an early hour in the day.  It was made plain that the gangs of roughs who congregated in the streets were bent upon mischief, and waited only the first pretence of a cause to commence trouble; and upon the slightest demonstration of a color, not borne by Orangemen, but by unprotected women, they broke out, and the result was the murder of poor Hackett, and the thrashing of Mr Henshaw within an inch of his life. No precautions appear to have been taken to avoid a collision such as there was reason to expect, even with the Orangemen giving up their intention of walking; on the contrary, every latitude was given the disorderly, and despite the volume of force actually at hand to repress disturbance, it may be said that the mob was wantonly allowed to take possession of the city and work its nefarious will unopposed.  The citizens of Montreal will not, we are sure, allow such trifling with an immense responsibility to pass unregarded, but will call to a proper account whoever is chargeable with the prolongation of a period of disorder.

The Orangemen fulfilled their obligations to the letter.  They refrained from any act which might be construed into a demonstration.  They attended divine service, but not in procession as a body, and when it was over they withdrew in the same way.  Their path to and from the church was surrounded by roughs hungrily watching an opportunity of strife; while in the church hostile crowds were around the edifice, but the Orangemen offered offence by word, look, gesture or deed to none, and they must be held blameless.  The conduct of those who sought occasion of molesting them and devoted a day and a night finding it carries its own condemnation.  Henceforward, if party processions are to be longer tolerated, it will not be for good citizens to turn Orangemen from their design of parading, but to assist them, and teach those who seek to oppose them the sternest of lessons.

The mob held the streets yesterday, must never be permitted to repeat the outrage, be the cost what it may.

Announcing the publishing of the Trip Diary of Elizabeth Strickland Leitch, c 1908

https://gilliandr.wordpress.com/trip-diary-of-elizabeth-strikland-leitch-c-1908/

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

In 1908 Elizabeth Strickland Leitch, wife of Judge James Leitch, kept a diary of some travel she took that year.  Her first trip was to the American south starting in Washington, DC and moving down to Florida.  Her next trip was to New Brunswick for a small coastal vacation, and on her return she went to Montreal to visit family.  Her last trip in this diary was to a summer hot spot in Prince Edward Island.

During these trips she made comments on the places and the people she met, all the while talking about her family – children and others, whom she kept in touch with almost daily while she was away.  The diaries are interesting commentaries, providing a look at how a prosperous older Canadian couple moved about,  what society they kept, their personal lives, and their feelings towards each other and their family.

I want to thank my cousin Deidre Bower for her giving me access to this precious  diary in 2008, and allowing me to transcribe it at that time.  I also want to thank her for her permission to publish the transcription on my blog page.  The link you will find above.  I wanted to share this diary with family and interested historians.  It is an interesting work, and deserves some consideration in relation to Canadian history of the early 20C.  Elizabeth Strickland Leitch was a woman of her time, and a part of a social network of politically connected conservatives in Ontario.  Her husband was a friend of Ontario Premier James Whitney, and had been appointed to the Ontario Railways Board two years before this diary was written.

I have annotated the diary through endnotes in order that those reading the document can understand some of her references to friends and family members.   This includes my great-grandparents Minnie and Will [which for me makes them feel much more real than their formal names Mary Jane and William) and my grandfather Hugh, whom I never met.  I hope that these prove useful to those reading the material.
