Helen Ford donned a barrel for “Dearest Enemy,” a musical romance of the American Revolution, at the Knickerbocker Theater on Broadway. An article dated Dec. 27, 1925, speculated that a “subventioned observer” from the year 2025 would, after a period of careful consideration, write something like this: “The young women of 1925, it has been clearly proved, went around attired exclusively in barrels…. The dress, of course, probably had its disadvantages, if we are to believe the ancient legends about the rigors of what was then known as Winter.” Photo: The New York Times
