1960's Magazine Advertising Window Cards

In the 1960's most people picked up a copy of the daily newspaper at a newsstand, candy store, or luncheonette on their way to work. Women would generally pick up a copy of their favorite magazine at the check-out counter of the supermarket or the corner grocery store. As a way of reminding readers that the latest issue was available the store owner was supplied with window cards. These cardboard signs showed the cover of the current copy and were displayed either in the window or somewhere inside the store itself. We have a small selection of window cards from the Saturday Evening Post and Ladies' Home Journal which all picture well known actors, celebrities or politicians. They remind us of those luminaries we were most anxious to read about in the popular magazines of the day. They all measure 10" wide x 12.5" high. They are in reasonably nice condition although some have stains and light soiling. Condition is noted.
