A fun column from Ann Arbor - about sidewalk cyclists and (gosh) bloomers!

We're talking the 1880s here. In this delightful piece by Laura Bien from the Ann Arbor Chronicle, Bien cites the paper's archives on hot topics from 130 years ago, some of which have reheated themselves only recently....

We don't hear much about bloomers these days, but they were objects of horror and derision back then - "Only pretty women should wear them!"
