This picture perfectly captures for me the style of the 1930s. I think my glamorous 1930s ideal probably stems from watching too many Poirot and Hollywood movies, where all the young people were beautiful, tanned and althetic, all the men had slicked back hair and dashing looks and the women had perfect pin curls. I daresay everyday life wasn’t normally this glamorous, but I like the thought that it might have been…

The photograph is Dutch and was taken in the early 1930s. I love the fact that this couple are sharing sandwiches, it makes for a great picture doesn’t it?
