Secretaries of the Past

March 3, 2009

These old photographs of secretaries are amazing!  I saved these such a long time ago and forgot to post them.   Daniela sent me a few of these, but I can’t remember where I found the others.

I love the old typewriter

I love these great 1940’s – 1960’s paintings by pin-up artist Gil Elvgren. They are from the Taschen book, “Gil Elvgren – The Complete Pin-Ups”

I love these conte crayon drawings by pin-up artist Bill Ward from the late 1950’s – early 1960’s. These are from his popular telephone girls collection.
