In the spirit of a New Year’s cleaning, my wife went through some boxes in the garage. Lo and behold, it turned out to be a time capsule. Specifically, 1984. Plenty of magazines. Here are some snaps of People. I noticed that every other ad was for cigarettes or liquor. Guess People readers liked to drink and smoke.
You have to love the totally “natural” poses they put this Wrangler lady in. I especially like how she’s calling the little leaguers out.
I guess we can thank Quasar for the idea of having electronics in multiple colors.
My guess, People must have had a target audience of bars.
This kind of puts the whole 80s in perspective. Lots of things to miss, but plenty I can do without. Like those Wrangler jeans.
