ELMER BATTERS Black Silk Stockings late '50s

Prior to Tip Top, The Nylon Jungle and his catch phrase Tip of the Toes to the Top of the Hose, Elmer Batters created Black Silk Stockings at the end of the 1950s. Photographed, designed and published by Batters these, the earliest full-size "garters & hose" magazines, set the bar for what would soon follow from Parliament magazines in the early '60s ... with the content and editorial direction in Batters' hands.
