Weird Wednesday: The Birth of the Vanity Mirror

[Source: Modern Mechanix; February 1933]

I knew there was something missing from my car.  Who knew it was a mirror in the dash ?  Apparently this 1933 article is way ahead of its time because vanity mirrors are in every car these days.  I like how they brought up the safety aspect.  Maybe I'll have to think about my "vanity" mirror differently.

Madame Sylvia Loves Cold Baths

It's Cold Baths Only for Madame Sylvia

Don't take a hot bath - "It is a cold bath that is resting."

Only take baths in cold or lukewarm water

Cold baths are therapeutic and combat insomnia

Cold baths are an astringent and tighten your skin

After your bath, take a rough towel or glove and rub yourself vigorously for 10 minutes

Least Favorite Actresses Part 2

Least Favorite Actresses - Part 2

Shirley MacLaine

Jean Simmons

Jennifer Jones

Betsy Drake

Jayne Mansfield

Mamie Van Doran

Marie Wilson

Some I just find annoying like Betsy Drake, some just don't seem to have enough fire in them like Jennifer Jones, and apparently I don't like the dumb blond persona of Jayne, Mamie, and Marie.

Up next - I'll pick on the men.
