The Library of Congress holds an extensive collection of trade journals. This millinery trade review, for example, is rich in details on changing fashions and new materials, hair and make-up styles, ideals of beauty, and costs. The early issues include lists of new millinery businesses (many women-owned), help wanted and sought advertisements, obituaries, and trade union notes. Also included in the early issues of the review are two inserted pages of color illustrations of the newest Paris designs. From these drawings, U.S. hat manufacturers could create extravagant models to delight the hearts of affluent American women.
