I WANT This Job


Jantzen Ltd factory at Lidcombe, NSW in 1953.

Seriously, I'd have to go back in time, but I'd do it! Check out those suits! The one with the large bow, swoon! I just want to rummage through those shelves, look at the patterns and materials and try on some of these lovely swimsuits. A girl can dream.

Can I come too?! Btw, the swimsuit on the poster on the back wall is actually for sale at etsy right now. So gorgeous. It is marked as "Jantzen International Set, a Chilean Design"

I saw that, unfortunately it has some damage.

Hi there, I found your site because of the image in this post!

The genetleman on the left is my Mothers Cousin, and the lady with glasses looking at the same model is my Great Aunt. It was taken in Sydney, Australia.

The image isn't from 1956. It was first published in a magazine, I believe called "Pix", on the 19th June 1953. My Great Aunt did pass the magazine on to my Mother and she still has it.

My Great Aunt was VERY talanted and my <other was lucky enough to watch and learn how to fit garments properly. She made my <others wedding dress (and a number of others as well).

My Great Aunt has now passed away (back in 2001 at the age of 94) and my Mothers Cousin is still around.
