I stumbled upon The German Hosiery Museum before going to work today. Who would have guessed!
The museum only exists in this virtual form, as far as I can tell. There are mentions about plans regarding a physical museum, but the "News" section hasn't been updated since -03... And in these days on financial mayhem, I suppose it must be hard finding sponsors for a museum on hosiery, so virtual museum it is.
But who am I to complain? They even have a section on 18th century hosiery. Jump right there, if you wish!
