My, Times Have Changed...


Many Depression-era ads disapproved of women who were too thin. Can you imagine?

This old ad is from the August 1935 issue of Motion Picture courtesy of University of Southern California Cinematic Arts Library.

I love this! I think the Dove Soap people should use this in their "Love Your Body" campaign.

So much for those who say, "You can never be too rich or too thin."
A time when we needed, and need, more healthy body images.
