Spring is here!! A great The Passing Show cover 1937

20th March 1937

I bought this today for £7...the cover just was enough in itself for me to buy...just full of joy and fun..a nice Spring fairy type women pushing the man to enjoy his garden once again...with a lovely bright yellow background...

Inside there are some nice old drawn adverts for cameras..vacuum cleaners..erm cigarettes...lots of men smoking pipes..:)..also there is adverts for the Coronation year...not enough cartoons inside for my liking..and lots of stories to read..But the cover and the adverts are the best thing about it..

the artist is Gilbert Wilkinson..

See more Passing Show covers here...though the one above isn't on there website..
