Good Housekeeping classic covers often show children in cute situations where they are dressed and are acting like adults. For example, the cover for January 1930 depicts a child dressed as a pilot in front of a plane. The boy is standing in a childlike way while dressed like an adult, and many people have adored these types of images for ages. From sitting next to a riverbank to feeding a cat, these children are brought to a new light in the adult world.
While magazines now are often plastered with photos of famous people, Good Housekeeping used a timeless style to create works of art on their covers. The children depicted on their covers convey a sense of childhood and make adults reminisce and smile. These classic covers are the perfect way to take a trip back to a simpler time.
