Woman's Journal was a long-running magazine that by the 1950s was definitely aimed at a middle class/society readership.  The magazine featured a wide variety of subject matter that included amongst other things fashion pages, household, furnishing and interior design features. The magazine also featured stories from the top writers of the day.  As the magazine moved from the early 1950s to later 1950s, articles started to feature more modern contemporary furniture and household items.  There are also many pages of advertising in these magazines for a wide variety of fashion, household, furniture, furnishings, food and contemporary culture.
All of these magazines are in a pretty similar condition. They all have some degree of rusting around the staples and a few have some paper loss to the spines. Some issues have a varying degree of storage and handling marks over the years, but all issues are tight and complete.  Any issues standing out as worse condition than the others have been noted.
All of these issues are the British Woman's Journal magazine.
