Pages from Pearson's - 12 January 1935
Another subject was "Why Are We Living Longer?" which boasted that a healthy man could expect to live to 66. That has now risen to 79 (and 82 for women).
Elsewhere in the magazine there was a hand-wringing article asking "Can modern youth repair the havoc we middle-aged people have wrought?", a news piece claiming that middle-aged men were paying 250 guineas for face lifts, an article about a footballer and a worrying piece about waste disposal.
Apart from one illustration (the first below) by Clive Uptton, the main illustrator for Pearson's – this issue at least – was B. J. Dawson, who illustrated three of the stories. Apart from also contributing to Wild West (the British boys' paper published by Amalgamated Press), I know nothing about Dawson, so any additional information would be welcome.
