I ran across this old book on how to raise a child in 1955. It's great for making one-of-a-kind "mail art", but it's also pretty funny (and scary) otherwise:
Lesson Learned: Birthdays are strange and frightening situations. Yeah, these girls look pretty scary to me too.
Lesson Learned: STAY OUT OF MY WOODSHOP GIRLS!
Lesson Learned: Who knows! Just watch out for the stick!
Lesson Learned: It's fun to wear gay costumes and sew like your mom.
Lesson Learned: Boys are allowed to hang out with girls without the fear of "catching" girly habits.
Wow. I feel so much better now, just knowing that.
