12 May 1942–The Australian Woman’s Mirror


Here is the cover and some of my favourite articles and ads from the Australian Woman’s Mirror Magazine from Tuesday, 12 May 1942 :

12 may - cover

12 may - cold ad

My mum used to use vicks on us when we were young, and now I use it on my kids when they have a cold – you just rub in on the chest.  Still going strong after 70 years! 

Here is a classic jumper pattern, similar to one I wore to school in the 80s.  One day I might knit!

12 may - pull over

And here is a description of how to use cold crème and vanishing cream.

12 may - ponds ad

12 may - pyrex ad

I have a pie dish just like this one, and I found a similar cake slice at the op shop this morning ($1!)

I think I have published the following two pages before, but I have enlarged them a bit so you can actually read them (I hope).  I love the nightie to undies demo.
