I’ve collected 10 copies of the men’s magazine Lilliput from the 1940’s to the early 1950’s – they are here.

We now have a page devoted to copies of Picture Post magazine from the war and from the 1950’s plus a couple of books on the magazine. They are here.

There is a new massive post of Country Life magazines from 1897 to 1925. They are a fascinating snapshot of posh life at the beginning of the 20th century. Check them out here.

Ideal Home is a home decorating mag which has been published monthly since 1920. There are some copies from the 30’s, 50’s and 60’s for you to enjoy here.

I have devoted an entire section to Minature Camera Magazine where I had copies from 1937 to 1941. You can read more about it here.

I was lucky enough to get hold of an entire year of Good Housekeeping Magazine for 1954. The entire year of magazines has been scanned in high resolution. They are here for you to enjoy as well. They are quite large should you choose to download any running between 100-200Mb each.

Punch was a satirical and humorous magazine that ran for over 150 years. I’ve gathered together 13 examples for you to enjoy here.

There is a large collection of the BBC world Service Magazine called London Calling here


This is my collection of magazines as it stands at the moment. Each magazine has been carefully scanned and corrected. However, if you find any errors please let me know.
At the moment I rather like the random grouping of the magazines and their subjects, however, if the collection grows then I may need to impose some greater order on them and split them into separate pages grouped around category.
I really like the picture of life and it’s different aspects they all portray. They all exude a positive spirit imbued with a “tomorrow will be better than today” spirit.
It is not my intention to infringe anyone’s copyright – so if anything offends anyone then please let me know and I’ll remove it imediately.
