1920s St. Louis Fashion Advertisements

1920s St. Louis Fashion Advertisements
This entry is part 17 of 26 in the series 1924 St. Louis Fashion Pageant

Here are two more vintage advertisements from the 1924 St. Louis Fashion Pageant. The first is for Schwarz & Wild, with a salesroom at 1508 Washington Ave, St. Louis MO. They apparently specialized in “one price only” $3.75  dresses made of Crepes deChine, Taffetas, Messalines, Satin de Chine, Foulards, Susquehanna’s, Poplins, Poiret Twills, and other kinds of fabrics that you don’t often hear about anymore! In their seventh floor salon, presumably in the same building (now known as the “Ely Walker Building”), was Ely & Walker Wholesalers & Manufacturers, showcasing the latest modes of coats, suits, dresses, and sports attire. The fashion illustrations on this page were lovely 1920s gals, dressed most fashionably.

Jessica Kay Murray

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
