"A Baltimore girl wears her boyfriend's photograph on her stockings. As hemlines rose, attention was focused on stockings and shoe fashions.
Ribbed and patterned stockings were fashionable, such as checked tights for sports, and stockings were made out of cotton, wool, silk or rayon.
Patterned legs would be popular again, but not until they accompanied mini-skirts in the Sixties."
