I have been thumbing through the old magazine since she gave it to me. What a treat.
I thought I'd share with you some of my favorite ads and articles:
I love this. It says that if you have oily skin, it "needs vigorous scrubbing with hot water, Ivory Soap and a good rough washcloth....several times a day to keep it clear and fresh."
And, for hair care advice:
"Strangest of all is the idea that cleanliness is bad for the hair. The most modern skin and scalp specialists urge frequent washing -- three of four times a month."
Toilet paper that is "soft as old Linen".
A new fridge....
I had to laugh when I saw the ad for Manlius. My strict grandmother sent my father there for a couple of years as a punishment as a teen for egging his teacher's Virgin Mary statue on Halloween....
"Nervous, backward and mental defectives." This was a REAL ad!
A school to train your boys to become a man?
I loved this one, too!!!
