Vintage Knitting Book - 1939

This was another great find by my niece, Kylie. Haven't the styles changed a lot in the past 70 years. It's kind of hard to believe that I own a book that is so old.

 
I can totally imagine my Mum wearing something like this when she was a teenager.


 
I could see someone wearing this today, even with the slightly puffy sleeves.


 
I guess they knitted just about everything you needed to wear during the depression. 



I could just imagine a librarian wearing one of these.



 
A lot less frilly than the bed jacket I shared the other day. 


 
I hadn't heard of pilchers in reference to a baby in a very long time. 
I don't suppose some younger Mums would even know what they were.
Can you imagine that the baby in this photo is probably a grandparent or even a great grandparent now? 

 
I remember my Mum buying this soap (and Camay) when I was little. Do they make Lux any more? 


 
Don't you love these old ads? 

 I still have some more photos to share but I will leave that for later on. I don't want to overload you with pictures :) 
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
