Above the title there is a line that reads:
Mechanucs - Autos - Home Improvements

and WOW ! There is everything in this mag.

But first, believe it or not, there are 63 pages of advertisements before you can get to any articles. THEN 15 pages of "Classified Opportunities". THEN 8 more pages of ads before the first article. But that's ok because the ads are really fab. I remember when I was a kid (won't tell you when) that this was about the only advertising I saw. We had no TV because I grew up in an isolated mill town. I LOVED these kind of ads. Especially the ones where you could send away for something for 50 cents or one dollar.

The big article is "Now They're Planning a City in Space " Great reading with colored life like drawings.
There's a 1956 picture of the weigh-in of the meteorite discovered by Rear Admiral Peary in 1894 in Greenland.
Bigger Farm Machines Reap Food on the Run with pictures of a sel-propelled cucumber harvester, tree shaker & celery topper and cleaner.
How to Put Down Parquet Floors.
And many, many more articles

Great vintage and retro pictures for your paper creations. This old magazine makes for great reading too. It is in very decent vintage condition with one very small tear on the top left hand corner of the cover at the spine. Yellowing of pages and some very light staining on the back cover. Everything you'd expect to see in a vintage magazine. No musty smell.
