It Was in 1891

From the Children’s Friend, 1944 —





  1. Kids in 1944 must have been terrific readers!

  2. And kind of dull ones, if they were entranced by this!

    (Seriously, as clarification for newer readers, the Children’s Friend was really more of an adult’s magazine than a child’s magazine for the first part of the 20th century: The magazine published upcoming Primary lessons for teachers, and parenting tips. There would be stories you might give to older kids to read themselves, but a lot of the features for young kids are ones you would expect a parent to read to a child rather than simply handing him the magazine. And so of course the ads were almost entirely geared toward adults, too.)

    Well, maybe a little . . .
