The 50’s Christmas Party

But even in spite of the changing attitudes to women and work a strong sense of the ‘woman in  the home’ prevailed.

This particular supplement is a good example of those ideals.

    Awesome! Love it! I work at a newspaper and nothing makes me happier than going through the archives and looking at old ads and lifestyle pieces…

      Thanks for the interest in my little site! I must just say that a fanatisism such as yours is unusual here in the UK! I follow the local football (soccer) team to a degree but . . .
