I recently purchased a copy of this magazine
LIFE magazine dated June 5, 1950
Dated just a few days before I was born!
Life magazine was a humor and general interest magazine
published from 1883 to 1936
TIME magazine founder Henry Luce bought the magazine in 1936 solely to acquire the name
He launched it as a news magazine with a heavy emphasis on Photojournalism published weekly from 1936 to 1972
This cover photo is Stasia Kos
I thought I would share some of the ad's from the time I was born
My scanner isn't working so I took photos
I love this ad for Jantzen swim wear
Esther Williams anyone?
Singer Sewing Centers
Love these outfits!!
Ford Motor Company
Ad for Father's Day
Lot's of June Brides
But my favorite is
A baby doll that cried tears....I had one as a very little girl
Such a difference in then and now! It is fun to look at this magazine and the ads (LOTS for cigarettes and Liquor) and see
Just how much things have changed in 60 years!
LIFE magazine came back in 1973 and published special editons
It is the magazine published between 1936-1972 that are collectibles
