National Bellas Hess Amazing Midsummer Sale catalog, 1946

Pretty summer dresses in cotton and rayon from National Bellas Hess.  Not much has changed, fashion-wise, since World War II ended a year earlier.  And as you flick through the catalog you can see evidence of an economy still hiccuping as it struggles to get on a peacetime footing.  A couple of pages have been overprinted with notices saying that the goods offered thereon were not available.
