(Webster Groves)
Webster Groves has it's famed night spots, too--and its the VENDOME TAVERN located in the heart of the "Grove", this spot is well-known among outdoor seekers because of its picnic grounds and baseball diamonds, where many games are played during the summer months, as well as a select spot among picnickers because of its large wooded picnic grounds. This spot, as mentioned, is under the management of Mr. Joe Turner, assisted by Lee McElioy, serving as their select beer "good ole HYDE PARK" along with the delicious sandwiches served by Miss Jinnie V. Henderson, the personable waitress. TOWN CRIER SODAS is the choice of soft drinks served at the VENDOM. Open every day for your enjoyment.

The "bustle" coiffure was designed by Lura De Gez. There is a high plume wave over each ear, with a cascade of romantic shoulder-length curls in back. 

To go with new clothes, make-up authorities advocate a return from the sophisticated to the little-girl look. Just the merest touch of rouge, a fleam of colorless eye-film in place of tinted eye-shadow and pale pink lipstick replacing the flam-boyant shades of past seasons. 

Every girl has possibilities for charm. Don't miss yours. Your skin has a natural loveliness, so why not enhance its beauty by preserving its loveliness? In using creams for the skin, be sure that the cream not only loosens and absorbs the dirt, but that it penetrates the pores, leaving your skin soft and smooth, vital and alive.

Monday and Thursday nights are "jumping nights" at Eddie Field's CAPITAL TAVERN on Windsor and Vandeventer. You'll agree after taking a slight glance at the many celebrators gathered here as this picture was taken last week in the tap room and they all, you'll agree also, are having a "high-time" at the right time "On Monday and Thursday nights!"
