Look at that bathtub. Isn’t that clever? A cabinet built into the side of the bath. Ikea could introduce that today and have it hailed as an innovative small-house space-saving lifestyle statement.
In fact, look at the whole bathroom. Gleaming enameled steel cabinetry with streamlined lights and faucets. Glass bricks lining the bath. (And no toilet paper. OK, that’s a bit too streamlined for my taste.)
Now look at that woman in the tub. Oh, you did already. She’s not wearing anything! Pretty daring, Mr. Montgomery Ward.
Finally, look her roommate on the cover. She’s wearing pants, darn it. How modern. Good times. A shame that World War II was just months away.
