LIFE's Leathers

Mid-Century Leather Accessories

This online exhibit is a collection of Life Magazines from 1940-1945 found in the George Peabody House Museum archives. Discovering these magazines was a great joy to find that we wanted to share with the public! Please enjoy exploring the leather advertisements from belts to wallets to slippers. Also in a display case at the Courtyard Entrance at the Peabody Institute Library you will find a display of Life Magazines covers.
