1950s Pin Ups
I just had to share these pictures with you. I bought the two trade calendars at a local collectables fair yesterday. They were still in the envelope sent to a businessman in Lanarkshire in the 1950s. On further research I have found that the artist Archie Dickens is a well known pin up artist from the 1950s, known for his slightly saucy pictures. These pictures have cheeky little rhymes below them but they are fairly innocent. I love the coloured prints and am tempted to frame each individual page and then display them together. Part of me feels it would be wrong to take the calendars apart but they wouldn't be easy to display. Your thoughts would be welcome.
