John Van Eaton was a Boy Scout back in 1927 and received Boys’ Life, the Boy Scout’s magazine. You could get one for 20 cents or a annual subscription for $2.00.

The magazine has legs. It’s still published today, although it looks a little different. And it includes a interactive website, that would have been unimaginable in 1927 — the year the first talking pictures came out.

  1. That is a very cool website and all the old magazines are really great. The magazine cover artwork during the 30’s and 40’s looks like it could have been some of Norman Rockwells work.
