Woman & Home Aug 1951 Cover

The same day I nabbed a pile of 1930s magazines, I also managed to get three 1950s treasures as well. This August 1951 issue of Woman and Home contains a lot of fantastic features, including all of the following:

  • Fashion plates “ready for your holiday” for April styles, plus a full-color page of children’s fashions
  • “The Story of Windsor Castle,” complete with photographs of the royal family
  • Knitting patterns for a summer twin set and a baby’s matinee jacket
  • Health, beauty and style tips
  • A full-color insert with summer lingerie and children’s clothes
  • Scads of ads that illustrate the era’s styles and accessories

Do note that I have not scanned the entire issue, since, like a lot of these vintage publications, it contains serialized stories that cut off at the end. Without the following issue(s), you have no way of knowing how the story continues and ends, which is very frustrating for an avid reader! I’ve therefore scanned the most relevant features in their entirety

The beauty of an eBook is that, while reading on your computer screen, you can enlarge the page to whatever scale you want in Adobe Reader, and you can also print out the magazine (or portions thereof) if you prefer a hard copy. I hope you’ll enjoy reading and learning from all the knowledge contained in this vintage magazine. I’m so happy to be able to add it to my favorites!
