Wonderful stuff! Thanks, frimble. I'll be checking out the art in due course, but for now I’m altogether fascinated by the ads in the back pages (& wishing I could read German)…

(german, but with art) is my new favorite parenthetical statement.

Sorry, I thought this was a posting of 336 issues of Der Stürmer, and I was a little surprised it hadn't been pulled by the mods.

WOW! I doubt I could read a tithe of that, but I'll be perfectly content to just sit and look at the pictures there. You've posted a real treasure trove here, thanks!
