Welcome to 1959, the last year of a glorious decade!
Historians use the word “boom” to describe a lot of things about the 1950s: the booming economy, the booming suburbs and most of all the so-called “baby boom.” Technology advanced rapidly after the war and soon transformed the lives of many people around the globe. Later on, came televisions and provided a link to the rest of the world.. and cars gave people a new mobility that would change the patterns of leisure and living.
Are you ready for the first issue
of the decade's last year?!
Red lips are slowly becoming pink
..everything is turning toward pastel.
As you can see, Burda has decided
to star printing additional magazines:
as of now, they've got January set for masquerade!
Advertisements are moving toward the front pages
(remember, back in the beginning,
they were shy, away in the back)
By the end of 1950s a lot of folk
has washing machines and the daily jobs got easier.
Special model for January
I say I love it.

Here are bright pieces,
perfect for the office: then & now
I can't say I'd wear the low-waist,
but it looks great.

The one on the left just might be my favorite
from this issue.

The booming prosperity of the 1950s helped to create a widespread sense of stability, contentment and a stronger bond within communities all over the world.
