Above, nine fun covers of the West German men’s magazine Gondel (Gondola) dating from the early 1950s. Gondel contained pictorials, cheesy jokes, short stories, celebrity profiles, and features about jazz. Like many mid-century men’s magazines, as the times became more permissive, it became more risqué, and by the 1970s had everything it had before, plus a boatload of nudity. We'll show you what's inside a couple of these down the line.
