interesting advertisement

This image is from a 1955 "McCall's" magazine. It reminded me of a presentation I saw at this year's Southern Humanities Conference about the imagery and sociology of women in appliance advertisements throughout the first half of the 20th Century. I found this imagery to be so weirdly "pop". Well, actually it is mostly "weird". Is it sexist? I don't mean to promote that. But I find that searching for collage imagery is also a journey through various aspects of visual history too. Enjoy!

  1. I love the vintage magazines. I always get a kick
    out of the portrayal of women and men in the old ads.
    It is amazing to see how times have changed.
