And now for something very ….er….different!



Before your eyebrows hit the roof, I would like to remind you that that this magazine was founded in 1881 and was a mass circulation ‘human interest’ publication which also featured short stories.  In fact P G Wodehouse’s first story appeared on its pages in 1900.

This copy dates from 1952 and would have appeared in Camberley newsagents, such as Sleets.  The reason I bought it though was that it contains a short story by my uncle and I wanted it for my family history files.  It wasn’t until the scanner was chugging its way through the relevant page that I thought I might as well share some bits on here, for your amusement……

  1. I used to work for the company that produced this when I first started work. They also produced magazines such as Practical Electronics, Householder, Woodworking, Amateur Gardening and more! They combined with Odhams, Fleetway Press and George Newnes (who published Country Life and Womens Own) into IPC Magazines in the early 1970s.
