For a change, here is something completely different from the Irish Times.
Rosita Boland looks at the first edition of “Women’s Weekly” in 1911 and finds much of it strangely familiar. The picture comes from 1911 Census dot co dot uk.
It is unlikely that my Mum saw it at the time or the following editions in the next few years. Grannie had other priorities and little time available. Also, in those days every penny counted.
As the article points out it would not be long before the world became a different and more dangerous place.
Up to a point, Lord Copper.
