1916 Mothers Magazine, An Explanation

I had gone to my storage unit several years ago to retrieve my fake Christmas tree. I found a few items in my unit that needed to be thrown away, so I brought them to the very large garbage can supplied.

On the ground next to the can were several boxes - all full of books and papers. Books! I pulled the car forward and loaded up. The books were in pristine condition, and the local book store bought them outright.

Amidst the papers (mostly clippings of long-gone movie stars from old movie magazines) was this delightful magazine - The Mothers Magazine - cover ripped off and the staples rusted through. I have carefully scanned the best pages to post as I can.

I would have liked to read the one about the civic triangle (the church, the school the movies...) I wonder if it was pro-movie? Or against...

They sure saw things differently back then!!!
