Hmmm, Miss Priscilla's sure wearing a 'come hither' expression, isn't she? That little girl on 41's S.E.P. looks as if she's afraid the turkey's going to explode! For the life of me, I can't figure out what 'cover boy' on The Farmer's Wife is supposed to be DOING? ("The magazine for Farm Women" ... is that like, the first Playgirl?)In the end, I'm inexplicably drawn to 45's Saturday Evening Post. Nice collection!
Yet, another thing gone. The only covers we now see for the month to celebrate the holiday are that of a cooking magazine. The art in them was the best part. I love your ode's to holidays. I like to do the same as if gives special feeling to parts of the year. Otherwise, it would be very boring. Not to mention the foods to par take of for each season.
I really enjoy these. The few that make note of the contents are interesting, "What will Bradley do for the Veterans?" Sounds like a topic of discussion for today. I wonder if the look of horror on the 1904 woman's face is due to the turkey falling off the platter or what appears to be imminent ravishment.
I'm strangely impressed by the 1915 Vogue cover (11th down). It's hard to tell where one woman ends and the other begins in those billowy outfits. Even then, identification is hindered by veils that have veils that have more veils. It's a wonder monogamy survived.
That top poster is a bit alarming. What on earth is going on???!
