A collection of women’s and girls’ periodicals, Femorabilia comprises two-thousand British publications (and more than ninety titles) from every decade of the twentieth century. Femorabilia will be available to view in a hands-on study session.
The collection includes an extensive wartime run of Picturegoer and a run of Girls’ Crystal from 1950-1952 as well as bound volumes of the first two years of Bunty (1958), the first year of Girl (1951) and the first 6 months of Peg’s Paper (1919). Other highlights are Diana, Judy, June from the 1960s and their older counter parts Mirabelle, Romeo and Valentine. We have a full run of Misty (1978), the first two years of Just 17 (1983) and selections of Photo Love (1979), Blue Jeans (1977) and My Guy (1985).
The study session will be followed by a symposium.
