Vintage Fashion Images from a 1981 Springfield, MO Arts Magazine

My husband and I have lived in a quaint little 1950s duplex in downtown Springfield, MO for the past 5 months. I just found out several weeks ago that our neighbor, a really cool older guy, owned a downtown Springfield vintage clothing shop during the late 1970s/early 1980s called Lacey's Parlor, which specialized in Edwardian through 1950s fashion! To prove it, he lent me a local Springfield arts magazine (called, simply, Magazine) that was published in 1981. The black and white photos are so amazing that I just had to share them!
