I had hoped to someday get to the magazine archives at the library to
check out some possibilities in WW2 ladies mags.  Photos from that era
show Rosie the Riveter and her cohorts wearing snoods/hair nets to keep
their hair out of their work and still look fashionable.  Other than
that, the crochet snoods we are familiar with appear to be a Victorian
phenomenon, with some also being shown in the Civil War era.
