Fun Antique Find

For some reason, shopping has always been the way my mom and I do quality time. We don’t necessarily buy anything, but we chat and browse. Nowadays, we’d prefer to rummage though a great “junk store” than shop for clothes. Today, while doing a little antiquing with her, I found this positively delightful Popular Photography magazine from February 1946. It’s fantastic!

PopularPhotographyMagazine-2The cover is not in perfect condition, but I’ll find some sort of sleeve or something to put it in. Isn’t it beautiful, though?

PopularPhotographyMagazine-1The inside, however, is pretty much perfect, and I’m actually interested in the articles. A few I’m especially looking forward to reading are:

  • “So This is Cheesecake” [cheesy 40’s pin-up style photography]
  • “Photographers Ran the War”
  • “Philippe Halsman–Modern Portraiture” [he made portraits of film stars like Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, and Lauren Bacall!]


And there’s a “Pix-Quiz” to test yourself:


What a fun find! It definitely added a little happy to my day!
