Mrs. Newton's Gown: the Big Picture(s)

Sunday, January 17, 2010

Susan reports:

When I posted a series of blogs last fall about the creation of a pink gown by the mantua-makers of Colonial Williamsburg, Loretta and I were completely bewildered by a software quirk that kept the photographs from enlarging when clicked upon. We are Nerdy History Girls, not software engineers, or even Blogger specialists, and therefore easily confused. 

Finally Loretta figured out the problem, and though we can't fix the original posts here at the TNHG, I have re-posted the photos, larger and now click-able, on my own website. Below are the direct links if you wish to see the pictures in detail.  Many thanks for your patience!

Susan, you have a beautiful blog!

And I love those pictures. I want to wear that dress!

If you hold down the Ctrl key and click the pictures, they'll usually open in a new window, quite large, btw. :-)

Thanks, Theo! :)

There's a quirk to Blogger that Loretta discovered -- that if you drag a photo to reposition in in the text, then it loses the capacity to enlarge when clicked on. Weird, but true. It took us ages to figure this out! Now we've learned to place pix before we write the text, and that seems to work.

As I said, we're not terrifically tech-savvy....

Thank you so much for such detail in even the background of the pictures.
