DIY Old School Style

When we were in Atlanta we stopped at a sidewalk book sale and picked up a pile of great books for fifty cents each, this one included: The Illustrated Do It Yourself Encyclopedia, 1956. Some of the pictures are hilarious. How did women ever make their waist's look like you could fit a bracelet around them? A lot of the information in this book would still be useful today, but lot of it not so much, like the many wonderful uses of asbestos (not shown, oops, left that page out). Click the pictures to see them larger.
