Thumbs up for Underwear: What We Wear Under There by Ruth Freeman Swain, illustrated by John O’Brien. Children’s history.

“N” Day was May 15th, 1940, the day when nylon stockings first went on sale to the public. Across the country [US] crowds waited for hours outside stores. Even though each customer could only buy one pair, three quarters of a million pairs of nylons sold out at once.
