A few days ago Madge featured a fabulous Life Magazine spread on dinner hats. She thought you might like to see some of the marvelous ads from that issue. So, here’s another slice of Life Magazine from November 1948.
Don’t you just love the colors in this Forstman fabrics ad? The company made yarn and wool fabric starting in 1904. They were eventually bought out by JP Stevens in 1957 then by Victor Woomens in 1999.
I guess women give him indigestion.
Ummm, I don’t think so.
Back when Ma Bell was a monopoly. Wait. . . aren’t they again?
Cary Grant took this advice literally and married Betsy Drake shortly after filming this movie in 1948. She later became a psychologist. Reportedly she and Grant remained friends.
I really like the design idea for this swimsuit by Schiaparelli for Catalina. Fun tag line with three ways to wear the swimsut.
Tagline for this one “Perhaps tomorrow I’ll own silverware as beautiful as Helen’s“. Who doesn’t suffer from silverware envy?
We hope you enjoyed this 1948 slice of Life Magazine. See you soon!

Great idea Madge and a visual treat! Love the Forstmann ad…the colors, the style…advertising perfection and I really got a quick out of the STA NEET ad. My latest Brookstone catalog feautured a very similar hair cutting comb. I said to my husband, “Why didn’t anyone think of this before?”…apparently they did and as with everything, what’s old is new again:)
Well Madge…you caught my attention again. 1948…I was a twinkle in some Daddy’s eye..and that pattern of silverplate, “Remembrance”..that was my beloved mother’s pattern. Thanks for the memories..hope you had a wonderful weekend..looking forward to the rest of the month. Your trips down memory lane are truly a treat.
