Life Advertisements from 1942

Today let's spend some time in 1942. Specifically let's look at some vintage advertisements. I love reading these old advertisements, time was just a little different back then. This particular issue focused on war brides as seen on the cover with her bouquet of war stamps.

Fickle, when was the last time you used that word?

Circle stitched bras, and undies ads are prevalent.

For the men of action too, when one needs that restful gentle lift.

And Sparkies! When's the last time you heard of a breakfast cereal named Sparkies!?! These may have been a pre-cursor to rice krispies or rice chex?

These are timeless, huaraches are still around today.

Amongst other things....

The war bride cover image.

And lastly, something to help bring a smile to that face! Enjoy!
