Strutwear Hosiery sign -- 1940s?

    Newer Older

    Chrome and wood Strutwear Hosiery sign from (I'm guessing) the 1940s. Cool name, huh? Would love to know more about the brand. Behind that is a New Home sewing machine cover.

    Found out the company is Strutwear Knitting Company, Minneapolis, MN, the site of a 8-month strike and the focal point of garment workers' unionization efforts in 1935. Still researching!

      I love this! The cool sign and the cover. They sure don't make sewing machine covers like that anymore. They look good together.

      This sign is great! Where did you find it?

      My mother-in-law moved from her hometown to Mpls to work at Strutwear because of the Union. Would you be willing to allow me to include this picture in my genealogy, giving you proper credit, of course! Thank you in advance.

      Absolutely! Im happy for you to download it and use it. I found it in a flea market years ago near Atlanta.
