Saturday Freebies

Here are some more pics to download and use as backgrounds for your work. They have been taken from a German Magazine from 1899, *Häuslicher Rathgeber*. I have several complete sets of these, for 1899, 1900 and 1901. They are very heavy tomes, each containing 52 editions, with the newest scandals, fashions, and also knitting and sewing patterns. And of course, adverts for everything one needed for daily life in those times!



If you click on the pics, it will take you to a larger image, which can then be downloaded. Thanks for looking, enjoy the images, and have a great weekend!

  1. Thanks so much for these Valerie. They're fabulous! Particularly like the vintage picture one, just beautiful.
    I still have to do my freebies - my borrowed computer won't scan at the moment!
