Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
Nothing is known about A Posner. As the Victoria and Albert Museum notes: "many hundreds of now-anonymous dressmakers and designers ... existed in towns and cities across the country until the middle of the 20th century mass-market ready-to-wear clothing came to dominate fashion" (source: http://www.vam.ac.uk/users/node/9124)
