Normally for “And Some Sort Of A Hat” posts I prefer actual photos, but this series by Vera Brosgol is too charming to exclude. (You might also want to see my post about vintage bird hats at my other blog.)
She finally got to the show, finally got a photo of her in her pretty hat published, and there Ethel is – blowing her nose. …Looks like Johnny’s eating a booger too. Oh, everyone was so proud.
This is the back cover of “367 prize winning household hints” from The Armour Radio Show Hint Hunt, a booklet from the daily CBS radio show. (Some tips are better than others — or at least the prizes awarded would be different.)
According to the booklet, which looks to be from the 1940s, there was to be a series of Hint Hunt booklets; however, this is the only booklet I’ve seen, the dirty rotten liars.
Time, July 28, 1947.
