August 5 is National Underwear Day. It seemed like a good time to expose a portion of the Sherburne History Center collection. We all have seen them. Most of us wear them. Yet, undergarments rarely occupy exhibit space. Undergarments don't receive much attention in the fashion magazines much less the ivory tower journals of history. Yet, here they are: the garments that keep you warm and keep you dry. Garments that serve a very important function in our daily lives. Here are two examples of underwear from the SHC collection.
Happy National Underwear Day!!
