You've been posting some great covers! The Feminina cover was excellent, along with McCall Quarterly, the Benito Vanity Fair, House Beautiful, Stanford Illustrated Review, the two Life Covers, and the Stolen sweets cover. I especially like the Life cover showing the couple caught by the great Florida land swindles of the mid 1920's.

Thanks, Jack! I didn't know it was a reference to a calamity that had actually occurred. I thought they were a couple who had just been swindled by a dishonest land-broker who hadn't told them the whole truth about the place they were buying until it was too late -- that kind of thing.

What you describe is what happened, they were just one couple out of many that found out too late.
I really like that Enoch Bolles Film Fun cover. I have a few of those magazines. The inside photos are also excellent.

Lucky you! I hope I get the chance to see them some time. :)
