This entry is part 1 of 21 in the series The Language of Fashion - 1939 Fashion Dictionary

I am kind of glad to be done with scanning this fashion dictionary, but also a bit sad! Here is the last page of definitions, the lengthy illustration index, the very back page, and the library check out card (dating back to 1956, but I’m sure that it’s the second card, as this fashion studies book was published in 1939).

What a cool treasure, to find a fashion book published at the dawn of World War II. It’s been interesting to expand my fashion vocabulary, and to learn so many new things about the history of fashion.

I hope you enjoyed it too!

I’m not sure what I’ll scan next. I have more issues of The Modern Priscilla, and also some other publications from the 1930s and 1940s….

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.
