Great concept!
The broken symetry in the composition is also is kind of disturbing...

Exactly! Or dust, for that matter. Ironing--that's something else entirely. :)

Oh , things were wild at sears and roebuck in fifties , Oh !

Incredible how you made different images work so well in one picture , this could be shot on location , except for the fact it´s not

sure it must be an accurate mental image of the elation , joy and relief given by the home appliances now at the reach of everybody with cash to spare

Without censorship of those times sears and roebuck would have paid big bucks for this advertisement

The thing I love about using old paper is that it gets me (and I hope the people who see the work) into a whole different frame of mind. When the first air-jet vacuum cleaner came out in the 1950s, it was such a big deal--I know, because my mother had one. She gave the vacuum a name, she was THAT bonded with it. So much history in the old stuff....
