Wonderful 16 page catalogue from Australian mail order company Wakes, dated Christmas 1947.

The catalogue has fantastic illustrations of women's dresses, silk stockings, shoes, gifts for men (handkerchiefs, socks, travelling rugs, slippers), sheets, handbags, gloves, lingerie, summer hats, toys (including a golliwog and a black mammy doll) and handkerchiefs. Front and back cover are in colour, all internal pages are monochrome. The original unused order form is still tucked inside too!

This would be a great resource for anyone with an interest in vintage fashion, 1940s fabrics or Australian retail history.

The booklet is in very good condition with just slight spine wear and a light horizontal crease throughout.

Measures 7 x 10½ inches.
