Nylon stockings. Woman in the street putting on nylon stockings in the USA after World War II. Nylon was a new material discovered by the DuPont Company in 1935 and used from 1939 in products such as stockings. Nylon stockings were immensely popular, but had to be discontinued due to nylon being reserved solely for wartime applications. When nylon was once again allowed for the domestic market, women were eager to start wearing them again and queued in sales such as this one. Photographed in San Francisco, USA, in around 1945 or 1946.
