Welcome to Friday, Dear Readers! And on Fridays this blog takes some time off from goofing off to pursue more leisurely pursuits like flipping through old magazines.
And to that end, here’s a magazine from 1953 I found stuck between two cookbooks at the Thrift store yesterday:
Come on, let’s look inside:
Is it just me or is this little guy wearing a saucer on his head?
This says: “Every Woman is Beautiful Thru Pregnancy”
Uh . . . not in this outfit she isn’t.
The note at the top of this page says: Painted for the Green Giant Company by Norman Rockwell.
Just think! In 1953 you could still hire Norman Rockwell to illustrate your ad!
Uh . . . judging from the color of their complexions, I think it might be a good idea for them to lay off the Libby’s Tomato Juice for a while.
Something in me longs for the days when gunning down Mother if she didn’t fix her children a snack of canned meat that had been “deviled” was considered wholesome fun!
While big brothers are chasing little sister (who has a a 35-year-old woman’s face) so that they can lasso her around her neck (good luck with finding her neck), the important thing here is that they won’t scuff the floors thanks to Simoniz self-polishing floor wax!
Well, Dear Readers, my scanning elbow is starting to act up again so we’ll quit for today, but I hope you enjoyed this little romp back to 1953!
Until next time . . . I love you
