Happy weekend! I've got a special treat for my vintage-loving ladies today. I'll be sharing a glimpse into the mid 20th century through my four antique magazines. This little collection started about two years ago and includes two LIFE magazines from 1946 and 1947, a 1953 edition of HOLIDAY, and a Saturday Evening Post from 1961. They provide an interesting first-hand look at the events, inventions and fashion of a bygone era. So sit back, relax, and head back in time with me.
Here's a little story - yes, father's gift of gab did save the day!
The advertisement illustrations are so cute and colorful.
This looks like an interesting series! It's hard to imagine a world where Dwight Eisenhower was a recently retired U.S. President!
It's a dachshund! :D
HOLIDAY April 1956:
A refrigerator and a freezer together?! Who would have thought?! I like this housewife's
Some ladies in jolly old England enjoying the sporting proceedings. I wish I could get away with wearing a dress like that outdoors.
Here are a couple of fine ads.
Next time we'll go even further back in time with two mid-1940's LIFE mags! Meanwhile, I hope that you all have a lovely Christmas week! I hope that in the midst of all the chaos, you find some peaceful times. :)
Do you have any vintage magazines?
Do you have any other vintage paper items such as clothing patterns or newspapers?
