1940s Psychic Hotline: Paper Edition

Super-rare vintage find: 1940s metaphysical booklet advising readers on several forms of psychic and astrological phenomena, including dream interpretation (viewable at full size by clicking each image).  It's always interesting to see the austerity and near-Biblical tone of such writings of this era.  By the 1960s, there seemed to have been a much lighter aura around these topics, reflecting what was perhaps their wider acceptance by a larger portion of the population.
