1913 Fashion Photos and an Ivory Soap Advertisement
Isn’t this Ivory Soap ad a classic? “Yes, it will wash if you use Ivory Soap and a little care… Ivory Soap 99.44% pure”.
Following that advertisement is a page of photographs illustrating and describing fashionable embroidered frocks for the summer season. I made a few scans, to make sure that I got all the wording and details! I love the elaborate gowns of eyelet and French embroidery (and a tip from the this page: “We all know that large eyelets are more neatly made if carefully run twice before cutting…”).
