:: The most wonderful note was found attached to this dress. It reads:
"I was married wearing this dress. $16.00 alterations free....Lenore Dress Shop, on Michigan and 30th. The Most Beautiful Day Ever. February 16, 1940."
We will include this dear note with the dress.

(In the 1940s, this strip of Michigan Avenue was a bustling retail district. Dress shops such as this earned Detroit the nickname "The Paris of the Midwest". After many years of decline, this area is experiencing a rebirth; just one of many areas of Detroit that are not only hanging tough, but thriving.)
