I am studying the magazine advertisement "Off to Work We Go" as shown at this link. http://library.duke.edu/digitalcollections/adaccess_BH0065/#info

I am interested in identifying the uniforms shown. Can anyone help?

Also, do you think the women on the far left of the ad is wearing gloves?

Thank you in advance for your help.

The uniforms on the ad don't show any uniforms of a U.S. military women's service. Probably, they depict civilian volunteer services.

It is hard to tell if the woman on the far left is wearing gloves. Back then, gloves would have completed an outfit.

Greetings,
Katy

Hi Student,

What an interesting subject to study!

You might find these uniforms in "Dressed for Duty" (either vol. 1 or vol. 2). The second on the left looks like a factory worker, and the second on the right like someone in a medical profession, maybe an assistant or a student nurse.

I'll try and have a look if and when I have the time, but maybe you can find the books in a library near you Smile
