Hallowell, Maine, USA
1886 - Emmaline Prescott, of Hallowell, is one of the characters of Maine.
She is over fifty years old, and for more than twenty-five years has peddled pins and needles, and such small wares, from house to house through the country. She wears the bloomer costume, a full skirt reaching to the knees, with close-fitting trousers. She is modest, gentle and the soul of benevolence. She says that if women knew what a comfort the bloomer was, they'd all wear it. - Boston Journal.
