Woman Magazines from 1960 Available from www.vintagebritishstyle.com.

Out of all the different types of magazines published, household magazines for women probably reflect that period in time better than most other publications.  With their usual mix of household, fashion, advertising , letter and lifestyle pages they offer a reflection of that time that few other publications can match.

Many of these magazines had huge weekly sales.  As they were usually viewed as completely disposable magazines, the vast majority were simply thrown away after being read.  As a result, a small number of these type of magazines have survived over the years.

Please note that as was common with many UK magazines that some of these issues have a pencil (sometimes pen ) name  or address on them which is usually on the top front or back cover margin. This would have been marked on by the original newsagent.

This magazine was a typical stapled British magazine. As usual there is a little discolouring to the paper over the years and minor little folds etc to the edges of the paper on some magazines. All magazines  have all however been stored flat over the years and unless noted otherwise are in VG condition (or slightly better).

COVER DATES ON BRITISH MAGAZINES

Please note that the cover dates on British weekly magazines(as with most weekly magazines/periodicals) IS USUALLY NOT THE DATE that the magazine was for sale on, but the date usually for Saturday at the end of the week of publication. This was done to give newsagents some time to sell the magazine before it was out of date. Most British magazines state cleary what day they actually went on sale and this can be seen clearly from the scans.  

If you are buying magazines for a Birthday or Anniversary gift then it is better to be buying for a specific week rather than an actual date as this in many cases will not be a published date.

PLEASE NOTE THAT UNLESS NOTED FREE GIFTS ARE NO LONGER WITH THE MAGAZINE.
