Before and after


I bought about 20 mid century magazines at an estate sale last week.  These awesome pictures are from an issue of Seventeen from May 1947.  I had no idea Seventeen used to be an oversize magazine.   It struck me as I was going through it and choosing what to scan from it, that my mother was a teenager in 1947, so she may had owned a copy or seen a copy of this same magazine on the newsstands in Detroit.
