    Well, for better or worse, a great many pieces in my personal vintage/antique clothing collection are like this. I once had a seller at an antiques show try to talk me out of buying a 1940’s apron that had been carefully repaired with a dissimilar patch. He showed me like-new vintage aprons, but none of them touched my soul like the message of this seemingly insignificant garment that the former owner repaired, rather than buy a new apron...

    I hope this link will lead you to the article even if you don’t subscribe, which I do, so I can’t test it.

    Hooray -- the NYT just took down their limits on online access, so I'll now be able to read it. Thank you, Lynne.

    Excellent article! I hope they get the funding to preserve these pieces.

    Wonderful article. Makes me almost cry thinking about not saving this history.
    Yes for sure.

    When I clicked on this to read it (and of course YES is my answer) I only have 3 articles left.

    The free access was only for a few days, they are back to 3 or 4 articles per month.
  11. If you have a subscription and don't mind stealing the occasional article, you can take screenshots to share privately, such as here. I have a subscription (or DH does, I think. WAPO, too). it's similar, if done only occasionally and not in a haphazard manner, to claiming/grabbing an abandoned WSJ or NYT left behind by some business man who's finished with it, when you arrive at Penn Station.
