"Kalburnie Gingham

Name on Every Yard 32 inches wide

Lancaster Mills, Makers

Ginghams Are Blithe and Gay

The patterns and colorings of Kalburnie Gingham suggest happy hours. Smiles seem woven in every thread. The colors and designs please the eye. The price pleases the pocketbook.

For all-the-year wear Kalburnie Gingham makes excellent play and school frocks. The weave is sturdy. The weight is heavy enough for wear, and light enough for coolness. Guaranteed to satisfy or your money back.

Kalburnie Gingham is woven at Lancaster Mills, the oldest, most experienced gingham mills in the country. Ask for it at any dry goods store, prices at thirty cents a yard. Samples on request."
