    Background: In the specially floodlighted Krelagehuis in Haarlem a household-fair for women is held every two years. This fair is specially organized to please the housewife and they have succeeded in offering Her much variation.

    Of course she is interested in modern household equipment. Knitting machines, vacuum cleaner, and sewing machines make their life easier.

    But the little tidbits and new recipes that they can taste for nothing, is for these ladies with a sweet tooth something they have not to prepare themselves, and a very special treat. But the biggest treat, the topic of the visit, is for these "Exclusive" housewives to watch a fashionshow for a few pannies. These women enjoy seeing dresses, imported from other countries, a nice German "sack" dress, fashion from Italy, Swiss cotton-dresses, Scottish tweedcoats and even an attractive coat, made in Holland.

    The ambassadress of France, a can-can dancer, would introduce some excitement in the middle of these gentlemen, who have come together in Rotterdam for a tailor's fashionshow, competing for the national title of the best taylor.

    Experts show each other their professional skill in making taylor-made sports-costumes, suits, coats etc.

    You can't imagine a more critical audience, but the colleagues are ready to applaud admiringly when something special is shown.
