"The Latest Freak"

On the Sunday Magazine site, I stumbled onto two newspaper articles from 1910 that offer a fascinating look at the origin of the hobble skirt:

"The Hobble" Is The Latest Freak In Woman's Fashions

Queen Mary's War On Hobble Skirts Hard To Win

The latter article refers to Queen Mary infamously banning hobble skirts in her court because wearers of such fashions were unable to properly curtsy to the queen.
