Then & Now: Thunderbird Fashions Western Wear

I have a western skirt set in the shop (bottom) that is made by the company "Thunderbird Fashions," an Arizona company from the 1950s that specialized in western wear. While researching the garment and it's maker, I came across this picture (top) from the inside of the "Thunderbird Fashions" factory. I wish this photo wasn't black in white because I'm sure those seamstresses are surrounded by a riot of color in fabric and metallic trim. This photo was found at the Arizona State Library Archives and the skirt set is available in the shop HERE. Enjoy!
