Great thread !!!
Great thread !!!
I love these type of shots of people with vehicles. People were smaller and generally thinner so the machines looked massive. Look at that bike! Impressive. This was exaggerated in car advertisements where the people were made to look even smaller inside an enormous automobile.Originally Posted by Elizabeth.F

I have a bunch of old photos I've picked up at antique shops and such of everyday people from the 1930s and 40s. Here are a few that I found on my harddrive (I've got to scan all the others still... )
I always love seeing how normal people followed the styles of the day in their own fashion!

Anyone have any pictures of soldiers/sailors from World War II?
Try the WW2 part of the forum. Bound to be plenty of pics in there.

Call me crazy but these women look more tidy and smart which makes them glamorous to me, than the modern women i see everyday! Great thread!
I LOVE this thread! Real women are so much better than movie stars, in my opinion. I love film stars for glamour, but this is the type of beauty we could achieve realistically and still retain who we are. Love it.

...how not being obese and putting a little effort into dress and appearance makes these ladies compare favorably to their modern contemporaries -- without the benefit of braces, contract lenses, etc.
