10. Swimsuit: This wool bathing suit is from the 1930s and is found in the met collection. The suits of this time took on the same look as evening wear with halter necklines and low cut backs. They often has cutouts on the side, as well. The suits were generally made of knitted wool, rayon, acetate, and cotton. Lastex was also used to add stretch.

Oh (NOTE: These are "Golliwogs". A friend brought me one back from London while visiting family there ... told me they used to come in cereal boxes (?). I collect Black memorabilia ... so i LOVE MINE ... however ... they do have a Racist past. Many things written - i attached one interesting article from UK mail online).
Sambo sweaters for the whole family! Because sometimes it isn't enough to just let people assume you're racist.
Robertson's Golly Jumpers Knitting Pattern, United Kingdom, 1975, by James Robertson and Sons. Robertson's had used the Golliwog character, first introduced in Florence Upton's 1895 children's book The Adventures of Two Dutch Dolls and a Golliwog, on their various jams and other food products in 1910. This imagery would continue to be used into the 21st century, even after the character began to be widely regarded as racist in the 1970s.
