Filet Crochet Patterns and the Back Pages from the July 1917 issue of The Modern Priscilla Magazine

Flattr this!

This entry is part 6 of 6 in the series The Modern Priscilla - WWI - July 1917

Here are some housekeeping tips from the July 1917 issue of The Modern Priscilla, as well as filet crochet patterns…. and lots of old Edwardian advertisements!

There are also even more recipes, an article on the nutritional value of eggs, and “Tested Household Devices” (featuring a vacuum insulated beverage container, and antiseptic nut cracker).

I really like the full color ad of a painted ballerina for Blue Jay corn relief.

About The Author

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.
