In 1911 the magazine included:
- cartoons showing why 'a woman's work is never done'
- lace and crochet instructions
- the first parts of two serials
- a full page advertorial for Antipon, a fat-reducing medicine
- 'pin money pages' - readers' recipes
- real love stories - readers are invited to send in their stories of how they met their partners, and all those published receive 'a charming little jewel-box'
- several dress patterns for women and children
- 'I agree, do the housekeeping yourself!' - a story of how the complaining husband managed the home
- an article 'How to become a nurse'
So - not too far removed from the kind of thing you'd expect in a current magazine!
As well as the facsimile, there's also reprints of problem page letters and ads from the past century, and lots of features comparing 'then and now'.
It's a lovely magazine - loads in it, especially for history lovers like myself. With enormous thanks to my lovely mum for alerting me to this very special edition.
