    ... on the paper before it was scanned.


    Likely I'm the only one who thinks pink bathroom fixtures would be acceptable (and I could live with it).  I think the pink and green thing came out of a historical reference to Empress Josephine whose bedroom was allegedly pink with apple green colors.  I couldn't find that one, but I did find images and a drawing of her bedroom at Malmaison.  Napoleon's bedroom is green, according to photos at his site.  [Scroll down on both sites for the views.]  Furnishings for that era were quite elegant - at least for emperors and possibly other royalty.

    Of my femininity and taste for frou-frou lacy things and pretty colors, one person said:  "Oh, you're such a girly girl...!"  I'm not quite sure if it was a compliment!  It is, however, a fact.  :-)

    I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor

      There are creases on the paper but they did not show up on the scan.

      The 1928 magazines are on thin paper. The ads are the inside back cover, which is a little heavier weight, but the inside pages are very thin and a bit smeary.

      I got a couple of 1931 Better Homes and Gardens at the same time and though they are printed at the depth of the depression, the paper is thicker and glossier so those magazines are in better shape than these with the wonder baths.

      All the more reason to scan these wonders for cultural preservation.
