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.
