Handbag Holds No Secrets (Nov, 1939)

Handbag Holds No Secrets
A transparent handbag” for women is now becoming a fashionable accessory abroad. Made of a clear, semistiff, transparent plastic material, with decorative stitching at the edges, the bag reveals its contents at all times. The owner can even powder her nose while looking in a mirror that is inside her handbag, as shown in the photograph at the right.

    I’ve seen these in the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s, every time presented as a ‘New’ idea but I never would have guessed that they date back this far.

    Maybe Charlie needs a new category:
    “Nothing New Under the Sun”

    I thought it was going to be some boring old post, but it really compensated for my time. I will post a link to this page on my blog. I am sure my visitors will locate that extremely useful
