Historic photos #25

Again, that’s a lot of mail. Back in the day, women were used to sell or show anything, cigarettes, cars, washing machines… despite feminists’ opposition to this, there is an undeniable glamour to the advertisements of the past.


About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    Guessing, more time vs as taken arranging the mail than the lighting, but the lighting captures well the model’s face in presenting one side well lit but not washed out while other side had sufficient but more limited lighting. The films of that day had a narrow range for tolerance in light exposure, so the white envelopes could not be given with as much detail as the subject, a most beneficial presentation of the model.
