Found this the other day among my fathers possessions, it belonged to a cousin. She had received this as a gift from her Sunday School Classmates on December 21, 1908. She passed away 14 months later at the age of eleven, & her sister kept it until she passed away 70+ years later.
The Girl’s Own Annual is a British book that was published from 1880-1940. It was a year’s cumulation of The Girl’s Own Paper which originally came out weekly until 1908 when it became a monthly publication. One could liken it to a modern teen magazine, in that it related to young women and their interests. And how the interests have changed. And how.
