Old Calendars

Old calendars like this one from 1935 can be found in antique stores, eBay, and sometimes, even still hanging from walls in old houses. They can tell us a little about another era in its own words and images; and how dress, cultural norms and advertising have changed or stayed the same over the years.

For example, women in sexually suggestive poses are still used to sell products. However, I can’t imagine today cigarette companies having calendars printed for their customers. I don’t think very many people would hang them in their home or business.

  1. I have used contemporary reprints of old calendars, printed on quality paper, as decorative items. I frame them in inexpensive IKEA frames and put them on the wall and change them quite often. An inexpensive and fun way to brighten up the house!
