I love old catalogs. They are a window, to peek back into the past, of what was the rage and fashionable then. This fall and winter 1916 B. Altmann & Co catalog has a story to tell of fashion, for men, women and children.
It also includes many accessories, such a shoes, hats, stockings and handkerchiefs. More fun looking is a peek at the household goods. Bed and table linens. China and silver to make a house a home. Jewelry is also included.
122 pages of the glorious past will be an education, both for enjoyable reading, or for doing serious research. Catalog is 8" x 10-1/2".
Condition: The book was glued to the spline, which has become loose. It is still intact, although no page 1 or 2. Cover does have some tape and a small loss of paper on the front. Inside pages are very nice.
