There is film gossip about upcoming projects, horoscopes, a short story, and film listings for the coming fortnight. ...I hadn't heard of any of them. Page 12 has the life story of Robert Hutton, accompanied by a picture which 'can be cut out and pasted on a postcard'. That's how you got your celebrity fix in 1947, you know. Page 13 has advice on the latest fashions in blouses, and how gloves are the perfect finishing touch to any outfit. My favourite bit has to be the advert for Liver Bile without Calomel. Apparently 'you'll jump out of bed in the morning full of vim and vigour.' For just 1/5.
I love seeing how tastes, fashions and opinions have changed over time. I've already bought Marianna a bunch of history books - hopefully she will love them as much as I do!
