Cover of Marvel Science Stories for April-May 1939. Shows an illustration by Norman Saunders, a popular sci-fi artist of the time, meant to show a "Beauty Parlor of the Future". Eando Binder provided a column describing it, in which he went into details about electricity recharging the cells of the body, and modifying the pituitary gland - not exactly fitting with modern science, but as he points out at the end, biology wasn't so well developed in those days.
My name is Herman, and I’m a patroller on the Norwegian Wikipedia, and sysop on the Norwegian Wikibooks. If you have questions, or want to contact me, please don't hestitate to contact me either on my Commons user talk, or at my English user talk (IW).
Here on Commons I’ve become more and more active, because I really like the idea of a huge database in which there are freely licensed images and other media files, combined with the MediaWiki software, with which you can contribute to the database yourself. I often take a look at the recent uploads and changes to look for copyvio, that of course is to be deleted. I’m active on the Featured picture candidates page, to which I have nominated some images (I think there were two). None of them have been successful (maybe because I took the photos myself? ), but my most recent nomination succeeded. This is my second edit of the picture, which became featured, see [[|its entry]]. I found the image whilst I was checking the recent uploads. There sure are some good photographers out there. You can find the picture right under the babel box on this page.
