This popular magazine, oversized at almost 14" tall, is still fun to read, not just for the great ads, fashions, decorating and recipes, but also for the fiction and articles. A spiffy young woman in a red and black suit with matching hat shops for just the right thread on the cover of this issue which contains great period ads for Armstrong linoleum floors, Sqibb's cod liver oil, Yardley's English Lavender, and Coty patterns, to name a few. There's also a wonderful fashion section in color and articles on copeprative living in college and preventive psychology and lots of romantic fiction. But the big name in this issue is that of Janet Flanner, the American journalist who was living in Paris at the time and part of the expatriate generation. Here she contriobutes an article about the various clases of English girls -- one on Parisian girls was forthcoming. Magazine shows a small discreet blue mailing label at lower front corner and a repair to top of spine with clear, not browning archival tape. Other issues from the period available.
