Old pattern books

During the summer I visited the Antiques Arcade in Hungerford, Berkshire and I found some old knitting and stitching pattern books and these old photos. My Mum used to have a big pile of knitting patterns like these and I used to love looking through them even though 50's patterns looked hopelessly old fashioned to me. Unfortunately they all got thrown out when my parents moved to Dorset, so many things just get ditched without us thinking twice about it. I look forward to using these old pictures in something or other when I get round to it (as always).
