1916 Mothers Magazine, Ivory Soap

Above -- It Floats!!!
Don't you wish the illustrations in today's world were this whimsical, this beautiful? I love the detail of the woman washing her precious child in the bathtub of the day -- a metal basin.

Below - New Years 1916
Love the whimsical flag they used to herald the new year of 1916. And the interesting article entitled "Ye Olde Tyme Fagott Partie". Too bad the meaning changed over the years.

Sissy! For some reason I missed this one. I, too, adore these old advertisements. What a lovely picture of mother and child.

Thank you for sharing it!
