  3. I love see these in color--the little book I have of 1940s Sears Catalog images is just in b&w, and obviously is only a tiny selection. Must resist trying to acquire old catalogs...

  4. Old catalogs can be an amazing, if not pricy hobby. You are warned :)

  5. Catalogs are my absolute favourite because they are the final stop of the "trickle down" process of fashion - by the time a trend makes it into a catalog, it's been watered down to such an extent that it becomes acceptable to the average consumer, and it really shows what Real People were willing to spend their money on. Thanks for sharing!
