Period Fashion, sewing patterns, engaging fiction, black and white art as well as the color, cooking and other home topics and interest pertinent to the magazine's role. Vintage ads as well. See sll scans, and, in particular, zoom on contents page, which gives a sound sense of the topics and the artist and author variety and quality.
