Front Cover
Courier Corporation, Jul 31, 1995 - Antiques & Collectibles - 138 pages
In the early decades of the 20th century, a remarkable phenomenon was revolutionizing American life. Mail-order catalogs, distributed by such firms as Sears, Roebuck and Company, were becoming familiar purveyors of merchandise ranging from stylish fashions for men, women and children to useful products and decorative accessories for the home.

An authentic record of what Americans were wearing during a decade of tremendous change, this vintage fashion parade will appeal not only to nostalgia lovers and Americana enthusiasts, but collectors, designers and fashion historians.
