100 Years Ago: Socks and More Socks

The Intelligencer March 1, 1915 (page 7)

“Busy Red Cross Supply Committee. A visitor at the Red Cross Supply Committee Rooms on Saturday morning, found the ladies very busy indeed, stitching socks together in pairs, putting them up in bundles of half dozen each, and packing away in boxes, to be sent away in the course of a few days. The response has been splendid, but still the cry goes out for more socks.

Some seventeen knitting circles, of fifteen members each, have been formed. These are all knitting socks at the present time.”
