Life Magazine January 30, 1931 Vintage Back Issue Hawaii Ad For Sale

Despite publication during Prohibition, drinking culture is prevalent on the pages of this Life magazine from January 30, 1931. "'What' asked a visitor to New York, 'is a needle beer?' Well, you take a drink and they find you in a haystack." Humorous treatise on “the Effect of Mirrors on Barbers.” "Portrait of a Wrestler" cartoon shows the various faces of the action inside the ropes. A cartoon depicts Adam and Eve's scarecrow. Some cartoons are racially insensitive; they weren't meant to offend at the time but are in poor taste today. “'You can’t change human nature,' cries the philosopher. Then he tries to make human nature quit assuming that you can."In the news, U.S. Marines are in Nicaragua. NY society announcements are presented in a humorous manner, and American current events are presented in a satirical manner.Beautiful Hawaii ad on back cover, and much more!


Magazine is in “good” condition. The whole magazine has been folded in half in the past, leaving a vertical crease from the top to the bottom in the center of all pages and covers. The magazine has been unfolded for years; now it lies completely flat and the crease lines are much less severe than if it was freshly folded.Front cover has mild scuffs from age/wear throughout, mainly near spine and vertical crease line. Mild wrinkling from use. Edges and corners are slightly worn but overall mostly undamaged, especially considering the magazine’s 83 year age. Tiny discolorations on front cover. Spine is mostly good with only light scuffing. Back cover’s condition mirrors that of the front cover, with slightly less wrinkling. Small smudges on back cover. Pages are all intact and unmarked. Edges and corners have mild wear in certain areas but are overall nearly new looking; most edge condition imperfections relate to the vertical crease in the magazine.Smudges and discolorations on a few page edges. Tips of corners have light crease line on about half the pages. To the best of my inspection, this describes all condition issues. Please contact with questions, and thanks for reading!
