Old Calendars

Post Comment


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!
