Continuing on my odyssey of scanning old publications for mocking amusement here, I recently acquired a couple dozen home decor magazines (including Better Homes and Gardens) from 1947 - 1955. I hope to post several scans with mocking commentary over the next weeks and months, content willing.

I'll be starting with a January, 1953 issue of a magazine called "The American Home," which had a healthy run from 1928 - 1977. A thin monthly tome compared to its behemoth "Better Homes and Gardens" cousin, it nevertheless features some entertaining advertisements and home decor ideas for the time.
