Starting a new feature in the blog this week – a sort of sneak preview of some of the items in the archives – that have yet to come into the light of day. Or onto the website.
Petite Echo De La Mode was a lovely French fashion magazine that spanned a goodly number of years, all the way up through the 1950′s or early 1960′s I believe. The archives contain issues dating from 1896 through 1939. While the Library’s collection is by no means complete, there is a fairly decent selection from most of the years.
If you would like to know more about the history of the magazine AND you can read French – there is a website dedicated to the magazine.
The lovely pictures below come from our April 11, 1926 issue.
