1932 Advertisement

As I was going through all of the fabric I purchased at the recent farm auction, I came across a plethora of newspaper clippings from the early 1930's.  The clippings were taken out of the Kansas City Star and featured various quilt patterns.  On the other side of one particular clipping, I saw this ad for the Gem Spangled Girl Show in St. Joseph, Missouri that advertises tanned legs!  My oh my would the audience of 1932 be aghast at what beach goers wear today!  Oh, and also notice "All talking pictures."  Cool, huh?  - - -

For those history nuts, like myself, I'll be scanning in lots of great stuff in the coming weeks.  :)  I will be posting most of it on my other blog:

Living in the Whirl of Oz


  1. I look forward to seeing some more of those ads. What an unexpected insight into life in the 1930's.

  2. I agree. It's quite a change from today's world!
