The People's Friend or The Lady?
Both claim to be the world's oldest women's magazine.
The People's Friend claims that it was firsr issued in 1868, No image of this edition is available on the internet, the earliest I can find being 1893
The Lady was first published on Thursday, 19th February 1885.
This week's edition dropped through my letterbox this morning, 131 years later.
So, there is little evidence for the age of The People's Friend, while that if The Lady is confirmed.
Which are you, the people's friend, or an elegant woman with an elegant mind?
