Unworked calico apron.

This appeared on eBay a few weeks ago, and I pounced! The lady who had it up for auction lives in the next suburb, and she brought it around to me a few days later, thus saving us postage and packing costs - it's handy when eBay sellers and buyers live close by!
This apron dates back to around the 1930's/40's, we think, going by the style of the swimsuit the lady is wearing. I've just photographed the main part of the design, and it isn't very clear because it is quite faded.
