Judge Magazine

I found this magazine while thrifting the other day...I thought you might enjoy seeing and using some of the pages. Judge was a satirical magazine published between 1881 and 1947. This issue was published in 1924. It's fascinating to read these old magazines and discover the mindset of the times. There's much of it that I would consider politically incorrect, sexist, racist, biased and just plain wrong but it's interesting to read and realize how much (in most cases) ideas have changed. I've chosen the cover and a few pages to share...I always love the ads in these old magazines...can you imagine sending away for a Nose Shaper??

Oh my. The nose shaper really cracks me up... yes, you too "can have a perfectly shaped nose" - provided you don't wear the nose shaper out in public! :)
