Electric Corsets: The “Very Thing’ for the Ladies

 two ladies wearing electric corsets
Here’s another of my current eBay auctions. If you thought that all that waste paper that slides out of your over-priced and over-fattened weekend papers was a relatively recent phenomena then think again.
This is an advertising insert, I think probably from something like the London Illustrated News. Beautifully printed in colour the true power of these corsets can is only hinted at. Produced by the Medical Battery Co. Ltd these corsets will AT LEAST aid the chest in its ‘healthy development’, ensure that the internal organs are ‘speedily strengthened’ and make the most ‘awkward figure’ graceful.
On sale here.
SOLD: £17.00

Apart from my family, my interests include books, maps, Nikon, Yashica and Mamiya film cameras, British Culture 1935 - 1965, Poole pottery, Welsh textiles, and Poster art. My favourite movies include anything by Pressburger and Powell favourite music includes Gene Clark, Gram Parsons, and anything form San Francisco 1965-1970. I am a late convert to 'Kraut Rock'.
