Our First Feature On “The Drug of the Year”, And Subsequent Covers

The woman carefully placed six small mounds of the powder on her hand with a tiny silver spoon while the men rolled crisp dollar bills into slim straws.  Then all three of them snorted the powder into their nostrils with quick expert sniffs and sat back to watch the party with great grins and sudden euphoria.

YOUR FACSIMILE NEWSPAPER OF TOMORROW!

Ready for you when you wake up, your newspaper of the future will be facsimile-printed through the night-in tabloid size, on a continuous roll.  You will bring yourself up-to-the-minute on the highlights of the news…by seeing what is happening on the television screen of the same machine.  Fantastic?  It’s already planned for post-war home use!

Newsweek November 6, 1944

This is so intense. WHY HAVEN’T WE INVENTED THIS NEWS MACHINE YET, HUMANITY!?

A former Newsweek Researcher recalls two of her colleagues being dispatched to a nearby bar to order martinis for the male writers and bring them back in paper cups stashed in their purses. The drink of choice was the martini, which former Newsweek Writer Peter Goldman recalls being served in “glasses the size of birdbaths.”
The three-martini lunch: totally a real thing.
From Ad Age: “Newsweek is planning an issue marking the return of ‘Mad Men’ this March by adopting the magazine’s 1960s design throughout — all the way, it hopes, to the ads.” That is so cool. We on nwk tumblr will be dressing very dapper that week and doing our best to match the vibe laid out in print.

The U.S. National Archives’s Flickr account has a series of portraits of miners on their way to work in Richlands, Virginia, in 1974. This one was taken by photographer Jack Corn as part of the Documerica Project, where “the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) hired freelance photographers to capture images relating to environmental problems, EPA activities, and everyday life in the 1970s.” nwk tumblr would like to add there is nothing particularly problematic about this man’s face.

We take these perks for granted, but dudes, 1956! Ovens in the sky! This very picture likely exploded many-a-mind.

Here is a mockup from 1956 of the first jet-transport interior to be created in the United States. Stewardesses pose inside the 98-seat Boeing Jet Stratoliner, complete with air-conditioning, running water, ovens, refrigerators, reading lights, and emergency exits.

Moar!
