Are you looking for time capsules back into the 20th century?
Advertising is a perennial repository of culture brimming with hints of "the way it was."
Some of my favorite ads recruit women to the Women's Army Corps (WAC). I started collecting WAC advertisements while writing my novel, Women's Company - The Minerva Girls, about WACs in the 1960s and 1970s.
I invite you to take a look at two ads that I added recently to my collection. Both ads appeared in popular women's magazines.
Lynne Schall is the author of three novels: Women's Company - The Minerva Girls (2016), Cloud County Persuasion (2018), and Cloud County Harvest (November 2022). She and her family live in Kansas, USA, where she is writing her fourth novel, Book 3 in the Cloud County trilogy.
