Vintage Nat Geo

I bought a few vintage (1940's & 1950's) National Geographic magazines in Oxfam yesterday. Not because I collect them, but because they have some pretty pictures in them. I especially love these fruit illustrations. There are loads more in this Flickr set.

And some pretty farm building in North Dakota.

More fruits. Why have they stopped illustrating magazines this way?

Some cute kids in funky outfits.

A slightly more scary picture.

An ad for Big Blue. Some of their machines are still this sort of size, I think. But infinitely more powerful.

31 chemicals helped make that shirt! Funny how times have changed, eh. I very much doubt that that could be a selling point these days!

Some lovely roses.
