Ken R.:

"AsThe Pond shows, some great petticoat images come from publications of The Era. Some people started a very ambitious project to collect the great department store catalogs and scan them. They started with the Christmas versions, hence the Wishbook name in the website (from the Sears Christmas Wishbooks). They haven't added anything to the site for a while for I think obvious reasons - the expense and the massiveness of the project. The site stays up though and Pond
 lovers should find it interesting to peruse the site. Here is a sample, from the 1955 Spiegel Christmas Catalog."

our special interest that we can see)
