Title

Open House For Nitey Nite

Description

Large advertisement for the Perry Knitting Co.'s open house of May 27, 1953 promises lots of information and "guided tours through 21 operating departments." In the meantime, the flyer mentions some striking statistics:
  • That a year's supply of cotton to produce Nitey Nites requires more than 8,000 acres of land;
  • That the thread used to stitch a year's production would wrap around the earth 26 times;
  • That a year's production of sleepers, laid end to end, would reach from Perry to Colorado;
  • That stacking a year's production of Nitey Nites would reach into earth's stratosphere.
Quite an impressive accomplishment, and this is even before visiting the PKC factory.
