Bad Site   ( This site just awful. No works cited, and hardly looks legitimate. This is what you get when type in ” wartime fashion 1940″ into Google. Granted, those are not the best keywords, but this site was on the first page Google showed.

Good Site  (
I don’t know if I would cite any of the information here…although I believe the site is monitored by the Smithsonian. This particular post was also tweeted by the American History Museum, nevertheless, I think it’s a great site to see what other people have discovered or have blogged about, and then try to find it in a primary. For example, I found an ad for paint on hosiery in a 1940’s issue of Life magazine.
