Isn’t this wonderful?  The whole family on the balcony together…doesn’t Elizabeth look happy?

Such adorable ads were found on these pages, as well…here’s one for a whitening powder…

…both dresses look pretty white to me!

And more history to see--

My daughter pointed out that she doesn’t think she’s ever seen a picture of Lady Churchill—I don’t think I have either, come to think of it!

So much lovely color here and there in a mostly black & white publication…

And a few more ads to share…

And a product I use whenever I can find it—just the think for a nice trifle…

I actually just bought a tin of it last week at Cost Plus before I’d photographed images for the post—serendipity!

Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee

See you soon with something new…
