In William Allen White’s book “In Our Town,” published in 1904 or 1905, he describes a midsized, prosperous Midwestern town as having the aristocratic ladies who wore linen as looking down on the majority who wore “Indian Head.” Do you know what fabric, or composed of what, might have made up summer clothing, (little girls in a parade) as used rather than linen? I am coming to your website because it is obvious that this was the manufacturer of whatever popular and generally used substitute he refers to.
Thank you for your research & response.
Very truly yours,
