Our first home, a 1929 bungalow was a fixer upper. We climbed into the attic to add insulation and found that a previous owner had already insulated it with newspapers and magazines from the 1940s! Bringing down the stacks of newspapers we were entertained for hours reading the war news. The Saturday Evening Posts went into a box and I stored them for 29 years before finding the lost treasures again last winter.
Paging through the super sized magazines I was mesmerized with the adorable slogans, the bright colored advertisements and the clever product promotions. I decided that the saving the magazines in the closet was not the way to really enjoy their charm. I started dreaming up a little project that would focus on the fun I had hidden in a box for years...
I cut the ads for several railroad lines and arranged the graphics to tell the story found on another advertisement that portrayed a young couple who met on the train.
Watch the couple and their romance as they share the bench seat on the train ride.
The plot thickens:
Meanwhile, elsewhere on the train another gal has a roomette, see what she missed!
Arriving at their destination it appears that the service man will have someone to take home to mother!
Don't you just love a happy ending? Me too.
