    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!
    Cheers!

    Try the WW2 part of the forum. Bound to be plenty of pics in there.

    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.

    Interesting...

    ...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.

    Fedora Lounge ladies excepted of course...
