Bradley Knitting Company

The Bradley Knitting Company was established in 1904 in Delavan, Wisconsin and produced sweaters, jerseys, bathing suits, scarfs, caps, children's suits, sport and golf socks, gloves and mitts. These are a few of their advertisements from the 1920's .

This one shoulder swimsuit from the 1920's was pretty daring at that time.

And here's another one with the one shoulder look. As an illustration it's fun complete with stocking and bathing shoes.

And finally a color rendition of the same water slide. I'm not able to find much information on Bradley, but it was the major industrial mill in Delavan and employed many of the local residents for 30 years.
