July 1917 – World War I issue of The Modern Priscilla Housekeeping Magazine

This issue included instructions for knitting items for the Red Cross and soldiers sent off to World War 1. I’ve scanned the illustrated front cover, the back cover which was an advertisement for Old Dutch Cleanser, and the Cream of Wheat ad in this July 1917 issue of The Modern Priscilla.

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.
