A pretty bat wing-blouse and sporty short skirt, plenty of practical jackets and skirts for girls, the appropriate wear for communion and something practical to make form wool remains (did they have to hitch the boy's shorts quite so high up?)
At the movies
A Hansel and Gretel film, but with no mention who the actors are. Not even IMdB can tell me which one this could be. Most of the ones found are 1950s or later, there's 2 or 3 entries for 20s or 30s productions, but no further infos or images...
Make it yourself
How to crochet lace for hankies! My grandma loved hankies like these.
Around the world...
One more of those totally random little articles - this time on chameleons. Well, I guess then they would have been something very exotic indeed!
Something we couldn't imagine these days... a story about diabetic children in the UK learning how to give themselves insulin shots - this was a novelty then!
Random news snippets... Mrs. Roosevelt in Germany, the first post-war carnival in Küsnacht am Rigi (motto: "Echo of the times" and featuring "a certain someone searching his 1000 years-empire with a stable lantern"!), Field Marshal Montgomery in Berne (being celebrated by people), a lady who had been working for 50 years in the same job (can you imagine?), an new portrait of Princess Elizabeth for her 20th anniversary (wearing a "tulle-decorated pink-golden spring dress"... I want to see this in color!), the "typical American housewife", a Mrs. George Lucas from Lafayette, Indiana, who won a competition of the "Home Makers Guild". The prize? Three days in New York! And finally... a sculptress.
Somewhere in America?
This is what this article asks. But no, of course not! All these images were taken in Zurich. Counter-clockwise: the Jelmoli department store (still stands, though there have been a lot of changes, and this is a view of the back side, that I can't find any good photos of), the church community house in Wipkingen (still stands - check it out here http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Zuerich_Wipkingen_Turm_KGH.jpg), the old stock exchange (still stands - see http://de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datei:Zuerich_alte_Boerse.jpg), the Walche tower (still stands, but I can't find any good actual photos) and the silo in Wipkingen (not sure if this one still stands).
This one is fun... it's telling people instead of making up for all the chocolate they couldn't eat when it was rationed by eating a lot of it now, but rather to buy good quality Tobler chocolate, as this would make up in quality what one had missed in quantity. Duh.
Tobler is the company who invented the Toblerone, of course :-).
Orbal of course had an ad in this issue as well... as always!
... guess what! Of course, it's Rondoform! Once more extolling all their scientifically proven blah-blah... this time even with a picture of some scientist. They never give up, do they?
