(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.)
