vintage 1930s True story romance magazines, available from www.vintagebritishstyle.com These magazines are about the same size as a moden Vogue or similar magazine.  The magazine is basically split into two halves.  In the first half of the magazine the text stories are well illustrated by either photos or period artwork. The text stories are continued in the back section of the magazine which is pure text.  The magazine also has nice adverts for contemporary fashion and household items.

All magazines are pretty much a similar condition. All are complete and tight, but over the years the area at the spine for about an inch down the covers  in has some creasing on front and back covers as the covers have been folded back over time.
These magazines are the British editions of the American titles. They were published in Britain and carry British advertising pages. Many issues have nice full colour back cover advertising.
