The 1930 DeMoulin Bros. & Co.

You just don’t see any North African Negro costumes anymore.

Pictured above is the cover of the 1930 edition of the DeMoulin Bros. & Co. catalog titled “Burlesque and Side Degree Specialties, Paraphernalia and Costumes.” We believe that this was the last “fraternalism supply” catalog the DeMoulin Bros. produced, as this company suffered the same fate that many businesses did with the onset of the Great Depression. Today, they are one of the largest suppliers of marching band uniforms in the country.
