Adult Girl Scout uniforms from 1955. Designed by Mainbocher, there was a more "formal" suit and a more "everyday wear" dress. The dress was also available in "Mariner Blue" for leaders of Mariner Scout "Ships" as their troops were known.
Girl Scout Cookies were sold annually by local councils around the country until World War II, when sugar, flour, and butter shortages led Girl Scouts to begin selling Girl Scout calendars to raise money for their activities.
