Antonín and Anna Dvořák arrange their luggage after arriving at the Kralupy nad Vltavou train station Sept 11

Dvořáks Up Close and Personal

It’s so hot you could fry an egg on the sidewalk. And Anna has only a heavy sun parasol and a folding fan to help her keep cool.

She’s wearing long cotton stockings, a couple of short petticoats, and knee-length shorts under a floor-length hoop that’s covered by a heavy cotton skirt with train. The long-sleeved, heavy cotton jacket is buttoned up to her throat, and her flowered hat ties under her chin with a wide, blue ribbon. She’s carrying a thick-twigged wicker picnic basket; her hands are captured in white fishnet gloves.
