Important updates to the Privacy Policy – GDPR compliance (and some light relief)

Our Privacy Policy has been updated to provide you with more information about your information.

Please see the Privacy Policy page for the updated version, which is mainly in section 1 – Information Collection and Use. The new GDPR regulations (25th May 2018) provide much more power to the people over the information that any company, organisation or charity holds on them. Even though we are leaving the EU, because people from the EU will view a website/use a service etc. we need to take notice of this. So in this case, you need to know why we collect any information, where it is stored, get consent to hold it, let you request what it is, delete it whenever you like, and inform you if any breaches occur. Details are in the updated Privacy Policy, please contact us if you have any concerns.

Feburary 1931 My weekly

Well, after all that we think these magazines are much more interesting…

August 1931 Weldon’s Ladies’ Journal

They are so different and yet they are from just a few months apart in 1931. They show how, just as today, they cater for their readership. With the 2 pence My Weekly focusing on practical 1920s style workwear for busy housewives, Weldons does not display it’s price and is for “Ladies”. The magazine is of better quality paper with more use of colour, and what we would recognise as distinctly 1930s long silhouette outfits which are not suitable for cleaning the house in! Both do provide free patterns though, so even the fashionable ladies in 1931 were obviously just as keen on a freebie as the hardworking housewife.
