The 1930’s Scrapbook

One last birthday present post. Adam’s grandmother, Nanny Sheila, sent me this delightful coffee table book called The 1930’s Scrapbook, compiled by Robert Opie.

Of course I went straight for the page on Women’s fashion.

But it’s also quite fun to see how the men’s and children’s fashions. I adore those boys’ knitted suits.

What makes the book particularly fun is the ability to picture the clothing in context. The pages on household appliances show women at work, not just as fashion models.

I can picture the food in the cupboard.

And the car that the family would drive…

…to get to the beach.
