Tokalon, 1946

Scanned from Portuguese magazine O Século Ilustrado, March 16, 1946.

"Why I use the new Tokalon face powder

By the Countess Belewsky

It's 'airized' - marvelously fine and light.

It adheres for hours, thanks to the 'Cream Mousse' is contains. It puts a stop to all fears of a shiny nose.

I find it has a choice perfume of real flowers, so fresh and so soft.

Its fascinating hues are the latest Paris creations. I think the new 'Pêche' tone is extremely flattering.

On sale in every perfumery and good houses. If you can't find it write to Depósito Tokalon, 88, Assunção Street - Lisbon, and you'll get it in the mail."

"Cuenca

When observed from the plains, you can see the hills all the way up to the top of the Castle, as though the houses were on top of each other, some eleven stories high, and the last is at the same height as some other streets.

Júlio Cejador

The famous hanging houses of Cuenca look like some sort of miracle, when in fact they were born of unquestionable logic.

The marvelous appearance of the Lincoln astounds us with its elegance and aesthetics; but its impeccable line is no miracle, rather the consequence of a studied and meticulous construction.

Only thus could one hope to achieve a car that is the symbol of wealth, taste and cosmopolitanism."
