trouvée: e-z underwear

Found last year at the Round Top antiques fair. And as if the photograph itself isn't funny enough, it is inscribed: "Audrey Duke / 8-31-54 / A good picture of the cabinet + you / Don Swift / E-Z Mills." E-Z Mills was a popular producer of underwear for infants and boys from the 1920s through the 1950s. I learned far too much about children's undergarments in the course of researching this photograph, and will spare you the details. However, on the off chance you are interested, you may read more here.

Some photo links:

* Sandi Harber Fifield
* Laurie Frankel (via cher ami)
* and Birdhouses (to thank Michelle for sharing the Frankel link!)

Wishing you a lovely weekend. I hope you all find a little something to make you smile.
