When you are so interested in the past that the magazines that you read are from the 1920s…..

I got some Photoplay magazines recently, actually…… i started collecting quite some time ago, and i decided to post some articles from them.

Everything about them is wonderful through my eyes… the photos, the way they wrote, the stories they published, the ads.. I tell you… I have them in digital version, but I will start looking for people (trustworthy people) who are selling them, because i really would love to have them in my hands and start collecting them.

I chose to share this one first, because i noticed Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle on the article, and it’s the first time I am seeing something about him on the magazines that I got.
