Ladies’ Home Journal, February, 1949

To celebrate the first snow for many of us in the Northern Hemisphere, I thought a bit of a sledding party was in order.  I love how the mother and children are all dressed alike, right down to the half-belts on the backs of their coats.  And such an effective use of red, seen only on the caps and in their cheeks (and Mom’s lips).

    I like the illustration. I’m still glad I’m in California.


  5. It’s a totally captivating illustration.
    (though the what’s-inside box in the lower left corner does add a somber note)


  6. Love it. Thanks for sharing.


  7. Another California no snow–but I do remember it from my Chicago youth!
