Panama 1910

At the Telegraph, a piece on parasols by my friend and former student Julia Hoban.

(The picture is from the Beinecke Library's lovely blog; it is a bridal photo of Grace Nail Johnson, the wife of James Weldon Johnson, in Panama in 1910.)


  1. Thank you for this lovely post and for linking to your friend's ver interesting article. I love parasols and have had several - but I always buy cheap ones that fall apart after one summer so maybe I should invest in a beautiful one such as the one shown in the Telegraph!

    Thanks for sharing


  2. Thanks so much for the link to this lovely piece--I'll have to explore the Beinecke blog as well!
