Yes, Part 10! Can you believe it? Just think there is still more to come! More of what, you may ask? More of The Standard Designer! A 1896 fashion periodical I discovered with the help of a friend back in February. While every page is accounted for, the condition of the overall magazine is rather dismal. In fact, it is clearly evident a child used some of the pages as a coloring book. *clutches chest at the horror of it all!*scarcely breathes* The sacrilege! That’s akin to taking a sharpie to Ferrari!
Since February, I have taken snapshots of about eight pages a month to share with you, Dear Readers. I’m a librarian, after all, and do not believe in withholding such historically awesome information from the public when I know full well this issue is not available anywhere online. So if you want original blog content, this is it! As to why I choose eight pages instead of seven or nine, I have a thing for the number four and its derivatives. Consider it my lucky number. In this instance, four is too paltry a numeral. Don’t you think? If I used the smaller digit there would be upwards of 40 parts to this post– “ain’t nobody got time for that.”
Below are pages 69-76. Since these images are taken directly from my phone camera, they are by no means high-definition. If you see a page that interests you and would prefer it in better detail, please don’t hesitate to let me know in the comment section and I will take the desire page and scan it in high-def at the library. Just let me know.
