Woman’s Day, November 1945

World War II had ended only two months before this November, 1945 cover was released, but it must have been months in the planning.  The Germans surrendered in May, the atomic bombs were dropped in August, and the outcome of the war was clear.  All that was left was for the soldiers to become veterans and return home.  And it looks like this guy has made it just in time to celebrate Thanksgiving.

So, no fashion this Saturday, only the good feeling of a young man reunited with his dog, and the knowledge that Mom is baking his favorite pie.
