The Greatest Fabric News of 1933

A former shopfront near my house has the windows covered with newspaper. But not just any newspaper, 76-yr-old newspaper!

(Sorry about the sky reflections.) It would be interesting to do a comparison of the prices compared to wages. I think that relatively speaking, fabric may be cheaper now, but silk crepe de chene for 3/11 a yard (about 40c) does sound like a bargain!
