High Fashion in Austin Texas - 1942!

Sometimes I find great stuff in with patterns I buy. These clippings are from the American-Statesman, an Austin, Texas newspaper from Sunday August, 23, 1943. They feature fashions from Yaring's and Scarbrough & Sons, two fine department stores that catered to collage bound gals, school girls and some high end suits and coats - "all sketched from stock"!

"Fitted black 100% wool coats with gleaming silver fox fur. $110.00"
