Slide Fasteners

Here is a neat package I found at an estate sale.  It's pretty self-explanatory and I wish we had the range of zippers shown today.  From the early 1940's.  I believe you can click on the pictures to see them larger.

Here is a very interesting article explaining the early years of Talon, Inc and the development of the modern zipper.  Here is a link to a book celebrating Talon, Inc's first 50 years.  An interesting article chronicling the later years of Talon, Inc.  Talon, Inc may even play a part in discovering what happened to Amelia Earhart!  And, of course, the Wikipedia entry on zippers.
