One of my favorite puzzle websites posted a trivia question about the Gibson Girl.
As I wasn't around back then, I took a look and did a Google search. Here's a clip
of Gibson girl images. Pretty risque, huh?

So, now I'm wondering what other "poster girl" series do you remember? Anybody
remember the Vargas girl? (If you do, I can guess what your favorite magazine was!)
How about Breck girls? Got any favorite images? Let's see 'em!

I've wondered over the years why people lived in homes and drove Model 'T's with such high ceilings- it was those freak'n giant hats that they all wore back then- the incredibly big hats for women (all potential 'Flying Nuns') and the top hats for men!

The 1993 Collectible of the Year depicts Zippo's original spokes model, Windy. Reminiscent of the famous Varga girls who graced the pages of Esquire and won GI's hearts in the forties, Windy was used in Zippo's early advertising. The advertisements feature Windy lighting a cigarette in a strong wind, with the slogan "She passed the fan test," which is a reminder that Zippo lighters are windproof.

The Windy Limited Edition commemorative features a high-polish chrome lighter with a pewter 1935 Varga Girl replica emblem, in a collector's tin displaying Windy's image.

I subscribed to Playboy for a while when I was in college and later got a key to the Dallas Playboy Club in the mid/late seventies and I could bring one guest at no charge. Every time that you went in you could get a free issue of the magazine and they punched your card. The annual key fee was forty bucks which about the same as the price of the subscription. They had wonderful free buffets and the biggest large video screen in the city plus an awesome dance floor that was mirrored (disco era) with quite a light display. The bunnies were hot and very cool people too, great drinks and service.

Women loved to go there to dance or watch football games and were much more fun than usual afterwards If I didn't take a date, I would take one of my buddies on Sunday pr Monday night during football season and they would spring for the drinks. It was a very worthwhile investment, indeed

But in 1980 I got married and all of that came to a screetching halt I still have my collection of the magazines packed away and that includes the last tri-fold and first of the new centerfold formats. Probably worth some bucks

I just LOVE the Gibson Girl look! I think I should have lived back then so I could wear some of those clothes!!! It was high maintenance for those girls though!!!

There is a place close to Knoxville where they hold weddings and stuff and they have Gibson Girls there! I would love to just visit that place to see what they are wearing!!

My ex husband, during our pre-dating stage painted pin up girl repliques. he was great at it. that was the beginning of me modeling nude for him. I love all those old photo and graphics and paintings. Cute topic!
