  1. Great images :) Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you too! I love to see how they all are dressed neatly. Even the working outfits are much more decent than today's everyday wear.

  2. ...also the hair styles are gorgeous on every photo :-)

    1. Exactly! It takes me hours to make my hair look more or less decent, and then it lasts for one hour until the curs strike back... :-) I wish I could make a hairstyle like the lady in uniform on the first pic...

  3. Fantastic post, dear Doris. One can't help but admire the way that celebrities of yore pitched in so heavily and patriotically for important causes. Today's Hollywood crop could take a serious lesson from them!
