Gibson Girl Newspaper Clipping from 1966

Gibson Girl Newspaper Clipping from 1966

Here’s a newspaper clipping from 1966 (dated by the ad for Cyborg 2087, which came out in 1966) about an 86 year old former Gibson Girl model, Mrs. Josephine Gibson Knowlton, the sister of Charles Dana Gibson. She was “the original Gibson Girl”. The story is rather pithy, and doesn’t really say much except that times have changed a lot between the 1890s and the 1960s!

… and also random stuff that was thrown in with this portfolio of Gibson Girls prints, including a scan of the cover. Scans of the actual prints will be posted next.

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
