Shoes: ca. 1941-1952, British, suede, leather. "The shoes bear the CC41 (civilian clothing) mark stamped on rationed, Utility clothing produced under wartime restrictions and austerity regulations. These restrictions, imposed from 1941, ensured no materials were wasted in the manufacture of clothing. Heels higher than 2 inches were considered unnecessary and, therefore, banned."
