Period Magazines: Great to Browse Through

If you are looking for a feel of a time period and/or images browsing is the way to go. The following are popular magazines -- some are on our shelves in the library, some are electronic, and some of the titles are from the HathiTrust and are included in the subject heading "Dressmaking Periodicals".

I've also gathered a collection of department store catalogs from HathiTrust that can be found under the collection Sears, Roebuck, and other Department Store Catalogs.
