July 11, 2012 under Vintage

What are these women doing?

They are getting stockings painted on their legs.  In 1938 nylon stockings became rare because all production was needed for the war to make parachutes.

Such salons had stockings paint in all different shades and they would even draw a backseam with a special tool.  You can learn more about this in the history section of this blog.
