Home Chat 1956
Home Chat Magazine was founded in 1895 and the magazine ran until 1959. It was published as a small format magazine which came out weekly. As was usual for such women's weeklies the formulation was to cover society gossip and domestic tips along with short stories, dress patterns, recipes and competitions. It began with a circulation of 186,000 in 1895 and finished up at 323,600 in 1959. Here we have 6 copies from 1956. They are a work of their time, fascinating in their concerns and world view.
The magazine was small and very flimsy. This made scaning and reassembling the mags as a pdf difficult and time consuming. Some of the scans are very large (8omb) so please be patient.
