Vintage Scans – Real Detective Magazine 1950

Real Detective, December 1950. My brother and his family moved to England last year and gave me a bunch of stuff. This was in the boxes, but it’s not at all like anything else they had and isn’t something they would usually have. Mostly it was stuff like a lighthouse bird feeder and some kitchen items.

Too bad this doesn’t have a really lurid cover. The ads are really interesting. It was kinda cool anyway, so I scanned the whole issue and here it is for you. I’m posting a sample but the complete thing is in the zip file. I’ve got the full-size scans (2480×3230) in a zip file trying out a new service. Try it here. Let me know if there’s any problems.

Check out some of these article titles: “Murder can Multiply”; “Terror in Timbuctoo”; “Beautiful – but for the Nose”; “Secret of the Green-eyed Blonde”; “No Man Smells That Sweet”; “The Killer Knew His Women.”

Some ads. Lots of health oriented ads which I didn’t expect. There’s 3 learn-about-sex books, a few for bust cream, and of course, lots of career possibilities. The color television bank and the strip tease necktie are cool.

  1. Great! Love it all especially the magic tricks. I need a Commander to wear under my sample suit while I’m giving harmonica lessons at my shoe store! Back then the world was full of possibilities.
