Whilst the magazines reflect the times,  I simply revelled in the photography and typographic layout, something many modern magazines seem to have forgotten about completely.

The images show some of the clothing and hairstlyes that were commonly worn by black women in 1950’s America.
There are over 311 scans in the set enjoy and don’t forget to leave a comment for the owner of the images, she took time to collect them together.
