Vintage Picturegoer magazine c.1946, Googie Withers

Apologies - it's been a while since I posted here as most of my energy seems to get channelled into my vintage postcard blog and vintage postcard web site at the moment, where things were getting a little unruly and some maintenance was long overdue. Hopefully this Picturegoer magazine from 1946 makes up for it. This edition's cover star is the actress Googie Withers, and of course the back cover features the usual great vintage advertisements. It was interesting to read about her and great to read that at 94 she is still with us, despite a small faux pas in the UK soap Coronation Street in 2004 suggesting that she would 'turn in her grave'. Great to see that lots of her films are available on DVD.
