Poor Ungainly Elevator Girls

Elevator girls from Marshall Fields department store (Chicago, 1947) demonstrating their "before" look: incorrect makeup application, ungainly body posture, messy or too severe hairdos.

Quelle horreur! What's an ungainly elevator gal to do? Why, go to charm school, that's what:


Correct elevator poise ...


Reducing exercises ...


Et VoilĂ ! "After" elevator girls radiate charm.

If it were twenty years later, they could have checked into the Beauty Hospital!
