There are some fabulous 40s and 50s decorating mags too, but being the 50s fan that I am I'll have to give them a post of their own at a later date.
There's always so many things I like about old mags, but this time I was struck by the amount of products that remain as well-known and loved today as they were then (this is from a 1948 mag).
check out the hot nurses uniform and the tiny waist...*sigh*
Nyal medecines, still around too. This pic reminds me of VB, she's just getting to the doll playing stage but her hair never looks this neat!
She must be using it, look at the grin on her guys face!
Dettol, what a classic! Did you know that if you live in a mould-prone area it can be used for washing walls down to prevent mould regrowth? (its better than bleach apparently).
All bran, which obviously has never had a recipe change. In fact it's so dry we could be eating 50 year old boxes of it and we'd likely not know the difference!
Check the blurb for Meds, below...
So much more restrained than we are today. *sigh*
