It's time for some nostalgic Christmas spirit from 1955. I've scanned from Everything for the Ladies number 50 - yes, I've made a translation error, it is not All for the Ladies, and I will go back and correct this later - and I could hardly stop when I got started, so this is the great Christmas edition. Remember that all scans can be clicked into large format.

But the one below right is fabulous, almost art:
You can also wish for knitting yarn:
And knit this lovely winter blouse with the great detail at the back:
Or you can wish for these lovely warm boots:
BUT - you could also be completely unwise and wish for some perfume luxury from Arden:
Or Dubarry face powder which gives the most beautiful teint in seconds:
And 4711 is still around today, if that is your taste:
Triumph promises Swing Action with their lovely slip:
Nivea cream was also popular back then, in fact I often use it as night cream during the winter months:
