Our new Ladies of Leisure set on www.printableheaven.com has already had a great reception so I thought I'd show you a few more pictures in the same vain.
A couple of the pics in this set came from a vintage tile catalogue from 1921, Home Suggestions from the Associated Tile Manufacturers in Pennsylvania. You can probably guess which of the images in this set came from here - the tiles in the background are a real give-away!
As usual, it doesn't mean they're not lovely pictures because they are - as I've said before, catalogues for products were often beautifully illustrated back then with proper drawings and paintings rather than photographs. On this subject, I must really publish some pictures of mangles and household equipment I found in a catalogue a while back - next time.
Digressing as I often do...... Here are the tile catalogue pictures:-
Lovely, aren't they? I especially like the last one - very summery and beautiful. And the guy in the housecoat is very Noel Coward.
Carpet-sweepers and mangles next time!
