Welcome to Magazine Monday. Today we’re going all the way back to the beginning, well almost. From September 1955 it’s the Junior Scholastic Magazine. This magazine is still available here (link) – OK - show of hands for those students in the 70’s that ordered from Scholastic Books? I sure did!
This 56 year old magazine has held up fairly well considering its basically printed on cheap newspaper. The Planters Peanut ad is fun and educational!
Don’t blink; The Disneyland article is only a one pager which was pretty typical since they didn’t even having any real photos yet. Notice the author was one the first visitors when the parked open to the public on July 18th. The Hub is called the “The Plaza”; I've seen that naming before – Jason would know... A ticket station for tickets to the Stage Coach - Cool. Nice plug for Storyland (Village), torn down in 1965 to build a Sears!
This whole man-made moon talk is just crazy. “By the 1970’s man may make his flight in outer space” that heresy! I suppose next you want me to believe that Ronald Reagan will be the president in the 1980’s and Jerry Lewis will be his Vice-President!
Check out Pat Boone, his follow-up to his first recording is in the “rock ‘n’ roll” field, “It’s not a dance tune”.
Hey – this is harder than it looks if you haven’t seen a classroom in a few decades.
This “Junior” educational magazine has a few cool advertisement. There’s nothing like a Coke, so true.
That's a great looking shirt and race car.
“Fill your fountain pen” Does anyone under 40 even know what that means?
Does anyone under 20 know what one of these is? No you can't send text messages with it, well actually you could!
