How To Survive An Atomic War

 Sunday Surprise Day.

Hamilton Greene was an American illustrator, who works in pulps and man's magazines most of his life. There is a nice overview of his career here: I am slowly selling all of my magazines from the forties and fifties on Ebay and in one of the issues of Argosy I came across this wonderful piece about how to survive a nucleair attack. I guess you had to have been there (or not).

Greene also worked a lot for LIberty and The American Legion. I have many issues of both publications (rich in cartoons and illustrations) whoch I still have to index and put on Ebay. If you like that sort of stuff, drop by once in a while. My bay name is geapelde.

I love seeing old stuff like this. It's really such a time capsule to a vastly different time. Thanks for sharing.

Yes, more people should see how sure people were of their misconceptions. Maybe it would rock the rocksolid faith in their own fallacies.
