Nostalgic for days I've never seen.
Women drawing stockings on with pencil, 1940s.
In WWII, many women would draw lines on with eyebrow pencil to look like stockings, since many gave up their nylon and silk stockings to help the war effort, and what was left was rationed. Nylon stockings were made into parachutes, tents, ropes, and tires, and silk into parachutes and gunpowder sacks.
