How times change! This book, Knitting For All, was published seventy years ago, just after the war; here is ‘a teenager’, with her sensible shoes, her ankle socks, box-pleat skirt and the navy blue ribbed cardigan, and a beret – a school beret by the looks of the badge on the front. Was that the way they wore their berets at the time, or was she being ‘trendy’? One thing is for certain, no-one these days, especially those ‘in their teens’ would ever describe anything to do with their own clothing as ‘gay’!!
I also notice in the background is a horse and cart – might it be a milkman?
