Librarian foible/quirk? or is everyone like this?
By studying the hair styles and make - up I'm making a stab at very early 1950s for some of them.
Also the names given to the patterns are a bit telling.
On the men's patterns we have Norman, Frank, Eric, Vic and Denis.
The women's patterns are named Rowena, Carol, Cynthia, Laurie, Grace, Sally and Vayle.
The babies? Janet, Marilyn, Susan, Diana and Chickadee!
(these photos have taken 40 minutes to load so I'm giving up and only posting three of them....)
Are current patterns named Mia, Ethan, Jack and Madison?
