Featured Collection: Traveling by Ocean Liner. Dressing the Part.
April- mid-August 2022
As warmer weather nears and more people make travel plans, our What We Wore exhibit in Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation focuses on ocean liner travel of the mid-20th century. Travel by ocean liner had become faster, more comfortable, and less expensive—and was part of the adventure.
Enjoying the superb service and elegant atmosphere in first class on shipboard—while dressing the part— was half the fun for travelers like the Roddis family of Marshfield, Wisconsin.
