As times get a little colder (in the Northeast, at least) and things get a little scarier (pretty much everywhere), a little good old fashioned summer sounds like a daydream. Take a break from the world with a dive into The American Girl Magazine from June, 1953.
This is my second blog post sharing an issue of The American Girl- it is just one of my favorites to take a look at. They do a great job of combining beautiful artwork with a little something for the “typical” teenaged girl in the 1950s. Based on their letters to the editor, they had readers from all over the world, including Peru and England.
I hope you enjoy this look into The American Girl Magazine from June, 1953! As always, if there is an image you see in the video that I did not include in my scans, shoot me a message via the contact page or comment on social media and I will do my best to get back to you with it!
