Vintage 1950s women's domestic / homes magazine

HOME CHAT No. 2991 July 19th 1952

Weekly women's magazine, published by The Amalgamted Press Ltd (UK)
Small format - 44 pages excluding cover - approx. 6.5" x 9" - cover in colour, internal pages in black and white. Printed on cheaper newsprint-type paper

This magazine contains all the usual fare that would be expected of a women's magazine of this period: beauty, cookery, child care, home decor, romantic fiction - plus some wonderful period advertisements for a host of domestic commodities and toiletries/tonics etc. It makes for fascinating reading! There is also a four-page article on Princess Elizabeth (soon to be Queen Elizabeth II)

Please note that this is NOT a dedicated craft magazine. However, it does contain a knitting pattern for a ladies' sweater and a crochet pattern for a table mat (both pictured here). Sweater bust measurement: 35". This is a UK magazine so adjustments may need to be made by international knitters/crocheters

In fair condition. Staples have rusted, leaving rust stains on all pages where the staples were situated (worse on some pages than others). Front cover has come loose as a result and there are holes where the staples once were. Small tear to top of 'spine'. Age discolouration to pages and some creases. Internal pages are otherwise good. No other stains or tears. No annotations

I offer a combined shipping discount - please see 'Shop Policies' for details. Shipping costs are usually estimated at time of listing (particularly for combined shipping). Any significant overcharge (after allowing a small amount for packaging) will be refunded

Any questions, please feel free to ask
