A Merry Vintage 1935 Christmas
I was flipping through the December 1935 issue of Delineator magazine, and found some great material. It’s interesting that, while in the midst of the Great Depression, they managed to project a glorified zeitgeist of the day. The cover photo is of two adorable children beautifully dressed as angels, perhaps for a Christmas play.
A Christmas poem was written.
Canned pineapple was new and exciting. Somehow they managed to put it on everything.
Aunt Jemima wasn’t politically correct, but damn those ham ‘n’ waffles look good.
Society women smoked the hell out of their Camel cigarettes, while managing to maintain their elegance.
Fashionable young women out on the town had throngs of dapper gentlemen offering cigarettes. Apparently only Lucky Strike would do.
