Laura Wheeler 1946 Designs Catalog

The newspaper description:  Fifteen cents more brings you our latest Needlecraft Catalog - the 1946 edition - 112 illustrations of designs for crochet, knitting, quilts, embroidery, toys, handicraft - a free pattern for cuddly toys printed right in the catalog.   

This is the first album in the Laura Wheeler series, that I've seen, that features a couple live models versus illustrations alone.   I checked the newspapers to see if the patterns featured live models as well.   No, the newspaper ads had illustrations.
