Marshmallow Fluff Anyone?
This wonderful brochure for the 1942 Sportsman Show in Boston is a great little time capsule of what it was like to be a “guy” right at the start of WWII. It’s also a reminder of how deeply embedded our minds are regarding comfort food and life in general.
I think I dated that chief’s daughter once, Princess ComeonIwannalayya.
No, That was the fraternity I belong to in Hawaii.
I always thought that was the princesses name in Star Wars!

Sorry, not very PC toward our native american friends.
This is the only stuffing we should be scribbling about….
I’m still looking for tht Army U-22 to pull in the parade behind a WW II Jeep. Would make a great combination
Was the ad for the 1942 show done before December 7 1941? Seems like most of the vendors would have been focusing on a switch to war production by February leaving the event as a showcase of products you can no longer buy.
That’s an interesting thought. It says copyright 1942. And I know back in the day the lead time for printing was not as quick as today. I would imagine that the ads for the book were created in 1941 and used in this. None of the marketers were large corporate entities. I would imagine the show was a tad slow that year for sure. Knowing that most of the young men were off to war.
WW II started in 1939. So the 1942 brochure came along well into the war, not “right at the start”.
Yes, but the DEC 7th connection would have been an interesting emotional pull.
