About This Ladies' Page


On Victorian Page the "Ladies' Page" will house those topics which appeared only sporadically in most general periodicals, but formed the staple material of non-fiction letterpress, or "copy" - to use the modern journalistic term - in the general Victorian women's magazines.  Not all will appear at any one time, but one or two of the following will always be represented:

Fashion

  Health and Beauty

Cookery

  Home and Garden


  Household  Hints

and

  Workbox - Needlework and Crafts

These icons are all taken from illustrations or advertisements from women's magazines of the early 1870s and the mid 1890s.
