Sepia Saturday October 1, 2011

This week, I found I could almost match the theme, legs, legs, and more legs, nylons and high heel shoes, almost bang on for the year (1937).  This is a page from my 1938 Sears catalogue.  I was fortunate enough to go to an auction a few years ago and purchased an unopened package of a pair of nylons, complete with the seam up the center.  I still have them, I take them out once and awhile and feel what REAL nylons should feel like......

  1. A perfect theme for some near perfect images. And age has made them sepia.

  2. My mother's father (who died in 1938) was a silk stocking salesman.

  3. I googled ny;ons while researching for my post. I dare not use the images I turned up!
    A catalogue of a by-gone age. Tights never had the same appeal. The prices never cease to amaze me.

  4. @Bob, yes the prices amazes me too, if one could go back in time (and of course, come back to the present) and make a few purchases.......

  5. Oh I loved this. I was a little girl when my mom and all the ladies in our family wore the nylons with the seam up the back. Now that was before the war. I remember when they no longer were able to get them.

  6. When I first saw the first one I knew it would be about nylons and so it was. Well, they might feel good and that seam up the back of the leg might have been the thing in it's day but I am thankful to be barelegged after a lifetime career in pantyhose and tights are great in the winter. Now in retirement I seldom have any need for pantyhose. I remember when we got them and were so glad to have smooth lines...

  7. I remember my mother in nylons with seams and fully fashioned heels and I'm just so grateful that they didn't remain in fashion. I could never see the attraction myself. Only on models do they look like those illustrated. :)

  8. Almost indecent! And what in the world is 10 thread service? What kind of occupation was that?

  9. Nice advertisements! Quite risky for that time? I believe nylons were introduced in Europe after WWII.

  10. Oh, I love ole catalogues! It's always amazing what you can find in them and the prices they charge, although I imagine price is relative; it was average for the day.

    Thanks for sharing!

  11. I've always wondered if the women that posed for these catalogs so long ago got into trouble with their families which were not that far from the Victorian age.

  12. @Tattered and Lost, I imagine they did, so "unladylike" to show the legs like that, tisk, tisk, tisk.....
