Popular Science (1936)

I found a copy of Popular Science, dated October 1936, on the living room coffee table this morning. Its so interesting to see the advertisements and what were innovations. Its like a time machine. We have thousands of these old magazines in our attic because the people who owned the house before we did left them here. They're such treasures. Some of the best articles include the innovations in how sports are newly filmed from balloons to get the best pictures, a description of the world potentially ending in a ball of sun-fire, and black eyes can being cured with a wave of electricity. I think the question should be, why are black-eyes so common? Pictures tomorrow of the great illustrations and photos.
I should also note that the red dress I'm wearing was my Grandma's, and I wore it to my high school graduation and has an abundance of sentimental value. Its one of my favorite items I have ever owned.
