February 25, 2013Gorgeous Illustrated Advertisements From The 1940’s
I have to admit that I have some great cookbooks in my collection, but one of my all-time favorites is a community/church cookbook called “From Ridgewood Kitchens”, which is from Ridgewood, New Jersey and was published in 1945. Not only does this cookbook have some great recipes in it, but the illustrations are phenomenal. And it isn’t just the recipes that are illustrated, either. The sponsor ads in the back of the cookbook blow my mind!
I don’t know about you guys, but I really want to get my hair done at The Beauty Mart! And maybe then head off to the florist, and then the ice cream bar…
Stay tuned for more 1940’s ads!
