Throw Back Thursday Crochet…. The 1940’s

I have always love the styles of the early through mid 1900’s!!!  I decided to check out what crochet styles were popular starting with the 1940’s…  Oh how I love this crochet era!!!!  So many fabulous Hats, Snoods, Shawls, Purses and Filet Crochet Art Pieces!!!

My Grandmother Beatrice Ryan would have been in her 30’s in the 1940’s… She would have had two young boys and have just moved to the United States from her home in Canada!!  Her life was changing rapidly! They moved to Mt Shasta to start their own general store, which is still run by my family today!!  A few short years after moving to the US,,, my grandfather was killed in an automobile accident in 1946…  Beatrice was left to run the store with her teenage sons.. After serving in the Korean War, my father took over the family store and transitioned it into a hardware store.. almost 70 years later and my father, two brothers, my husband and  all of our children are(or have) working in the store in the same building Harold and Beatrice started in!

I think in the 1940’s Beatrice probably didn’t have much time to crochet!!!  But, when she did… I bet she made some great, stylish pieces…  I love the pictures of the Crochet Styles and wanted to see what you think…  Do you love this style or is there another era you love??
