Irish Mail Order Catalogs and Advertisements with Boys Clothing

Figure 1.--A HBC reader sent us this Irish newspaper advert from an unidentifiedf 1977 evening newspaper which offered a short pants suits to fit a boy 13 years of age. We think this was an ad for a used suit rather than a store advertisemernt.

We do not yet have information on Irish mail order catalogs. We do not know how common they were or what companies were active. Ireland is a very small country with a tiny market. Thus there could not have been many companies active. We think British catalogs may have been used, but we are not positive about this. There were of course adverisements in local newspapers. Hopefully our Irish readers will provide some information here.
