Women You Should Know®
An Editorial Site For & About Dynamic Women
The folks over at Distractify have put together a series of old photos offering us a rare look at how things used to be. We chose a few of our favorites…
Whisky dispenser, sometimes found in offices. We are thinking that this one should make a comeback! (1950′s)
Full faced swimming mask designed to protect women from the sun (1920′s)
Winners of a beauty pageant (1922)
Baby cages for families in apartments who wanted their children to get sunlight (1930′s)
An early example of “horsemanning” (1920′s)
Anti-prohibitionists mocking their opponents in (1919)
Lead image: Beach official measures bathing suits to ensure they aren’t too short. Suits must be no more than 6 inches above the knee (1920s).

The best one is the window “cage”. Who in their right mind would put their child in that in order for the child to get air? I just shutter to think about that. Thank God that phase is now passed!!!
