Holeproof Hosiery, 1922

A while back I started following Retro Advert, a wordpress blog illustrating one collector’s finds in American print advertising.  I’ve been granted permission to post a few wonderful ads for the next few Saturdays until I can get my hands on some more vintage magazines.  I’ve used a number of the great ones out of the magazines I own, and there are still a few gems left in The Gentlewoman Magazine.  But I don’t want to exhaust all of my resources at once!

As always, a HUGE thank you to Retro Advert for letting me post your content!

So, without further ado, here’s a Holeproof Hosiery ad from 1922.  It’s so beautiful!
