Because (if) they might have not, how does using a 1940s picture solve any issues. It might be b/w and low quality, but the dress code might not be up to par.

The magazines that don't publish pictures of women, do so regardless of how stringent the tznius standard of the pictured women is.
Well cited, indeed.

May I offer a compromise.  Publish pictures of women in black/white and taken with a 1940s camera?


He said 1940s camera, not 1940s pictures

My grandmother used to tell us before showing us her pictures for the 40s " that it was a different time".

My grandmother used to tell us before showing us her pictures for the 40s " that it was a different time".

They most definitely were. I've mentioned my uncle's hotel in the past such as here
WHen my great uncle had his hotel in the mountains in the 50s, 60s, and 70s the kitchen was also run according to home standards and it was mostly a bunch of sisters in aw doing the cooking. Even when they hired a cook they were still quite involved and kept to home standards. The type of kitchen was not the same as a current commercial kitchen either. He had no hechsher but all of the gedolim of the time including R Moshe, R Aharon, the Debreciner Rov and the Mattersdorfer Rov and many others all ate there. At one point he had a hotel in Lakewood and that is where R Shneur's chasuna was. Things were different then, but a yeshiva type kitchen has a much easier time than a hotel.

My uncle had told me that for a period he also had a hotel in Miami. Before opening he went to check into the shchita there and for whatever reason was dissatisfied. There was also a train which brought meat from an NY shchita down to FL. In order to check it out he drove alongside the train one week. At one station a worker sees him and calls him over to rinse the meat since it wasn't yet salted. The worker gave him a hose and he was lifting the chunks to make sure he rinsed all over. The worker asked why it was taking so long since "everyone else just gives a quick spray around the car". So he didn't take that meat either. Instead he got the meat from a shchita in NJ and rushed it to his Lakewood hotel to salt it and rushed it back to be in time for the train going down keeping his packed separately.

In this hotel where all of these rabbonim stayed etc. and the Agudah made their conventions there was mixed swimming. R' Moshe told my uncle at the time that he should not enforce separate swimming but should rather make a separate pool for separate swimming because the hotel at the time was the only one whoch chained off the parking lot over shabbos and was THE frum hotel. It was used by only my father and his cousins. R Moshe felt that was not the fight to be busy with at the time.

In her next article she will write that all of these rabbonim stayed at a hotel which had mixed swimming.

I don't know how old you are, so I don't know what your experience with developing film is.

(Film being the medium on which images were captured, it required developing as a negative, and then enlarging onto photographic paper, which also needed some processing).

I am not sure up until what year 1940s media could still be processed.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Illustrations are always a good alternative.

I wonder if any of the magazines don't even allow illustrations of females.

And since it's Friday, I'll ask the inevitable question, does she it make a difference how the illustrated character identifies?

There is a beautiful new children’s e- magazine (for now) called Tmunah that does show appropriate pictures of girls and women.  They are asking for a $3 donation per issue but you can give whatever you want (so maybe just donate them a few bucks even if you don’t want the PDF).  :)

I just downloaded and printed the Adar issue for my daughter. It’s 36 pages with nice stuff in it (may daughter has already started some of the craft projects for Purim) and they have a beautifully respectful picture on the cover of Rebbetzin Jungreis, with an accompanying article. I thought it was a nice touch to have such a towering Torah teacher as a role model and also show not only “fringe” people are for including appropriate pictures of women.
