This is a picture from a vintage copy of The Ladies Home Journal.
I have one year's worth of 'The Ladies Home Journal' from 1906. I want to scan some of the advertisments and perhaps share some with the Flickr collage group. The adds are so entertaining and quaint and it really does surprise me how many of the products we use today were in business back then. It does seem odd though that every single page is in sepia tones and good old black & white. No color anywhere. To make up for it, there are detailed articles of various kinds and plenty of them. The magazine itself would almost make two of ours today, size wise. The subscription price for a year was $1.25 with free postage in the U.S., Canada, etc. Single copies 15 cents!The needlework is amazing, lots of directions for it too. Hope you've had a good day, I'm a little under the weather today, but still up and about. A bit of humor..from Rebecca McCann "Now the leaves are falling, Grey the autumn skies, Southward geese are calling, Perish countless flies." I'll say amen to that, thought I haven't seen any flying geese yet and those V-formations always give me a thrill to see.
