Articles from March 1942

Oh joy, the new scanner has arrived. Unfortunately I am still learning it’s secrets, but at least its a start. I can finally start sharing some images from 1940’s magazines loaned to me by a wonderful reader. First this Magazine from March 1942 –

What a sweet cover I can’t seem to find detail of it in the magazine, but she looks as if she has just had some bad news….

One of my favourite ads in this magazine is this one of Olviia de Havilland – love that hairstyle!

I’ll share more ads on the tumblr blog and try and scan a few interesting articles for next time.

About thewartimewoman

I love history, fashion, art and design, especially of the 1930s to the 1960s. I am also a mother, wife, interior decorator & a treasure hunter who wishes she could drive a 1933 Delage. I studied Architecture at Melbourne university, briefly, and completed a Diploma of Art in Interior Design at the Melbourne College of Decoration in 1991. I have worked on an off as a decorator ever since, in between stints as a florist, balloon artist, having my five children and helping my husband in his law firm. in my spare time I love researching history, blogging and gardening.

  1. I enjoyed reading some of your blogs. I have found that women’s roles in many (if not all) historical events has never been fully appreciated. I find this to be a consistent theme in the research I do for my books. Without the involvement of women, the French Revolution might have never happened (despite what Robespierre might say). The role of women in WWII has never been highlighted (expect the recent movie on code breakers). As I research my next book on the Paris occupation by the Germans, it is clear that women Resistants were equal to the men. Anyway, I hope you’ll visit my blog site (stewross.com) and perhaps you would consider being a guest blogger on it in the future? I look forward to hearing from you. STEW
