Offered are two 1940's era Ford Times magazines: December 1946 and July 1947.
I’m sure some of you have seen the little magazine put out monthly by Ford Motor Co. that was part marketing and part stories,art and Americana.
It started back in 1908 as an employee-only publication, but by the late 40s, it flourished into a general interest magazine with articles on travel and culture. It also went ‘pocket size’ in the 1940s (Henry Ford said it should fit into the pocket of a man’s suit).
What I love about it most are the warm illustrations showing idealized American cities and a charming life as a casual traveler.
The magazines were similar to Reader's Digest and Yankee. Ford Times magazines were 4x6 inches in size. Each issue usually consisted of several stories about destinations for sports or vacations or of historic interest.
As a Ford consumer publication, its purpose was “to present a view of America through the windshield.” Its whole goal was to solidify Ford’s relationship with its dealers and to be a monthly reminder to customers and prospects about what that dealer had to offer…
