Junior League Follies Seattle 1928

by [Seattle]

Condition: Near Fine

Seattle: The Junior League of Seattle, 1928. Printed wraps. Near Fine. 4to. Pp. 88. A rundown of the second Junior League Follies. Copiously filled with b&w ads. Printed paper wraps. Less a program than a vehicle for local advertisers to reach affluent Seattleites, this publication is laden with ads, many full-page, for all manner fo Seattle businesses, some of which prosper today. Nearly all the full-page ads feature a doyenne of Seattle society, often with a granddaughter, posed in a manner befitting the advertiser. For instance, an ad for the Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Company features "Miss Polly Perkins" lounging on a daybed with the caption, "Yes, Barbara, I am talking through a new handset telephone. It is the very latest." Our favorite, rather progressive for the period, has a young woman ("Mrs. Charles Donahue") astride an Indian motorcycle, men's cap on backwards, no less, along with jodphurs, in an ad for Rubenstein's Prescriptions -- "Quickest Possible Service." The multi-color cover has an art deco design that bespeaks the era's charming fascination with exoticism. To be sure, the ininitiated reader might assume Seattle of 1928 was nothing but luxury. Uncommon. SADS-ES-EM
