Description

For a teenage girl growing up in 1950s' Britain, "Girl" was essential reading. Each week there'd be another gripping serial installment; advice column "Mother Tells You How" would provide wise words on how to care for goldfish; "Concerning You" would reveal how to choose spectacles that suit your face and the Girl picture gallery of lovely paintings to cut out and keep would feature pin-ups of the day such as Humphrey Littleton, Princess Margaret and various garden birds. "The Best of Girl" is a fascinating window on this hilariously wholesome bygone age of fine upstanding virtue for those too young to remember it, and a completely compulsive nostalgia trip for those who aren't.show more
