Summer Girl 1943: Good Looks and the Girl in the Garden

My newly turned 20-year-old daughter has been working in an antique store this summer. They recently sold an old push mower, so the one in this brief article caught my eye.

The article mentions travel restrictions and gasoline rations, and I felt like similar things have probably been written in the past year or so. The suntanning suggestions are out-of-date, but the rest of it seems pretty spot on for today.

This is from the August 1943 Woman’s Home Companion.
