I'm fairly certain the magazine came from my grandma, but I'm not sure where she obtained it, as she was 15 when it was published. The date on the magazine is 1935. While thumbing through the pages, it struck me that despite changes in technology, so much in the world today is unchanged. There are still wars, and rumors of more war. Financial problems all over the world persist. Families struggle to make ends meet. Many quilters still sew binding on by hand and love red & white quilts!
I've been meaning to frame it to hang in the studio for years, so will get that done now. I'll also post a few of my favorite pages that might be of interest.
|These patterns are all mail order! Imagine making one of these dresses!|
|Mail order Zinnia seeds -- iconic company.|
|Ad for baking powder. A $1 a day for food? I wonder how much that is in today's dollar?|
|Smoking was still popular! And so was wearing fur!|
