Nelly Don: a short film clip

The "Nelly Don" label represented the largest women's dress manufacturer in the mid-20th century. This Kansas City business was started in 1916 by a fascinating women named Nell Donnelly Reed who created innovations in manufacturing, design and employee benefits. Here is a short clip is from a larger film titled "Nelly Don: A Stitch in Time"(2006).
