Want a 3 piece house dress? If it were 1916, all you would need is 69 cents! I wish quality clothes were still this inexpensive!
This ad is from a December 1916 copy of The Gentlewoman. W. & H. Walker, a catalog company based out of Pittsburgh, Pa, established in 1837, was an earlier version to Sears & Roebuck (which is no longer a catalog company, but a department store.) Walker sold practically everything. I absolutely love looking through old magazines and catalogs, both to see the changing styles and the prices!
