National costume, the most interesting of all the features which differentiate the peoples of Europe, is disappearing by degrees. With it, most unfortunately, disappear many patches of historic colour, many picturesque points of contact with the past. Even in Holland, where old customs and old traditions were so long and so faithfully upheld, the characteristic Dutch dress is falling out of use."
