Tall Man Wanted

above 1966 ad

Yes back in the day when an employer could specify what type of employee they wanted.

Tall man at least 5'11"
High school grad
Ages 25 to 30
must have lived within 20 miles of Salisbury for at least one year.

The cloth spreader would roll out material that was about 60 inches wide and lay it flat on a table so the fabric cutter could come along and put his template on the cloth and cut out the patterns to be sewn into a piece of clothing.  He needed to be tall as he had to stretch across the table to smooth the material out.  There are also ads for tall girls only.
