LOC Gov Doc: Thrilling Love
The 1930s saw the expansion of the pulp magazine industry. Hundreds of titles appeared, covering all genres and special interests, from horror to true crime to racy magazines. Covers reflected the content of each issue, and a number of stereotypic views of women prevailed—woman as exotic temptress, woman in jeopardy (often in painful contortions) needing rescue, and woman as romantic interest. This Thrilling Love cover typifies the popular true-to-life romances—the sports hero being congratulated by an adoring All-American girl. The romance pulps were one of the few genres where women authors could receive credit for their work, as Marcelle Lathrop and Helen Ahern did here.

ahh yes let me just FUCKING TAKE ON AN ME-109 WITH .45 ACP IN A HOT AIR BALOON

lol I love these

the list of guns I can name in the order they appear in the pictures

  1. Two M1 Garands(?)
  2. P08 German Luger
  3. Thompson Submachine gun, M1911A1
  4. Three PPSh-41 Soviet Submachine guns and a Soviet handgun of sorts, possibly a Tokarev.
  5. Thompson at a different angle

In addition to my last reblog it’s also interesting that both Thompsons in these pictures are technically incorrect. The first (held by the woman) is clearly a wartime example such as an M1 or M1A1 as the charging handle is on the side of the gun, yet the barrel extends far enough past the front sight and grows wide enough that it is clear there is a prewar Cutts Compensator on the end, a feature never included on these models. The Thompson appearing in the hot air balloon has the top facing charging handle and furniture of a prewar model 1928A1 but lacks the distinctive cooling fins on the barrel or a Cutts Compensator.
