The original spray-on tan

14 October 2013

awesome-black-and-white-historic-photos-16I’m still grading papers, which means I give myself rewards of a tour around the internet every 5 papers or so. And look what I found here: a bunch of great photos, including this promotional shot from 1949 of a suntan spray machine.

Don’t you love it that it looks so much like a gas station pump?

Okay, back to the struggle…

    And how did you arrive at this?! I am really curious about what you googled!

      I didn’t Google at all … Just stumbled across one of those interesting “50 Great Photos” kinds of posts. The kinds of things you find with the help of my RSS feed and Facebook!

    I love the looks and the fashions of that era. Even in a silly picture like that the model looks so smart and with it.

    • Didion Says:

      Too right, Hattie. I watched a bit of an old movie last night from 1946 and the fashion was just spectacular — so innovative. And the men’s suits!
