I have an elegant vintage 1946 Yardley advert to share today featuring a man and woman dressed stylishly for a trip to a horse racing event.

The picture was scanned from a publication that I own called Housewife which was the 1946 June edition and cost nine-pence.
This is the original scan of the advert:
