Celebrating Illustration, Design, Cartoon and Comic Art of the Mid-20th Century

So little time left...

Thursday, December 22, 2005

...and still so much to do - and so many Christmas related illustrations still to share with you! I guess I'll have to save them for next year.

Everywoman's Christmas '55 calendar has some hilarious suggestions that are woefully out of touch with these modern times... "Stag Party (!) with dishes for men to cook themselves" is suggested for December 8th.

"Start Christmas house-polishing" on the 7th and "complete basic house-polishing" on the 16th. If that's the basic house-polishing I wonder how long the deluxe house-polishing would take!

Did 50's moms read through this list and roll their eyes, thinking, "Yeah, right"? Or was it really a Leave It to Beaver world back then?

December 18th: "Serve a Reunion Brunch for college students after church"

Yeah, right!

For the legible version got to my Flickr and click on the "All Sizes" tab.
