Vintage Gallery #11 The 1940s baby clothes hangers
|Bakerlite 1940s children's hangers|
I've just packed these away. They have finished their duty as hangers for my children's clothes. Before that they were hangers for me, as a child in the 1970s. Before that (and first and foremost) they were hangers for my father when he was a child in the 1940s.
In pastel Bakelite with cut-out images of animals and gnomes, they now await the next generation of babies from a dark corner of the attic. I'm sure the Christmas decorations will keep them company.
