British Hosiery

Britain was once famous for its hosiery production, particularly around the Midlands (Leicester, Nottingham etc). Today though, this all seems to have disappeared, with hardly any hosiery being made in those areas anymore. I recently acquired a book all about the hosiery trade in Leicestershire which features many photographs and interviews with people who actually worked within the trade. I intend to post some of it up once I have read through it all. In the mean time I found this selection of vintage hosiery yesterday, all of which was made in Britain.
