Remember the fun of looking forward to your Dad’s or Grandad’s monthly issue of Popular Science or Mechanics magazines to read about the newest inventions and predictions for the future? It’s also great fun to take a look back and see which brainstorms and inventions from the past have actually made it into our present day and which ones really didn’t stand the test of time.We are going to add some RV history articles each “Throwback Thursday”. Click any of the photos to enlarge to readable size.
Niki and I are avid readers. We buy, sell, collect and enjoy out-of-print books, magazines and ephemera we find in our East Coast & Mid-West RV travels. We have done some research in the large quantity of early magazines we purchased at a sale this past Summer. Included were many issues of older Science and Mechanics Magazines with some great RV articles like the main articles in this issue.
As mentioned on the magazine cover, this magazine has the full, fold-out blueprints for building an “Underwater Metal Detector” and a “Sport Powercycle with Sidecar”. All of our books and magazines are available for purchase.
More articles next Thursday,
