The Front Cover --notice the price!
Last Christmas I was given a very unique and unexpected gift from our friend Lisa's parents, just because they thought that I would enjoy it. Mr. B has a collection of vintage magazines. I have never had the opportunity to meet Mr. & Mrs. B, but I thank them for this treasure. What a generous gift! This Woman's Day, is dated August 1952.
This is the first in a short series of pages I will show for this week and next.
The image that women's cleaning attire included heels and pearls. The "June Cleaver" image.
Sorry this one is so blurry--can you see what she's cleaning?
The fashion was very sharp-looking then--with the help of starch in the laundry. And yes, no permanent press yet--ironing was it!
Ideas for being frugal and making Christmas gifts- just like today:)
And giving haircuts at home.
Here is an advertisement that you don't see today. Full page ad.
The fashion for the campus, office and home.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed this walk into the past today. Next week I will share some featured articles, and more help for the homemaker of 1952.
Did you ever notice that in one of the first few pages of every issue of Woman's Day there is a scripture verse? Here is the verse found in this 56 year old issue:
"Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it." Psalm 34:13,14
Now there's something that never goes out of style:) Have a great weekend!
