Girl's Own Paper
  Magazines for Women

Girl's Own Paper,

In 1880 the Religious Tract Society started a sister publication to its popular Boy's Own Paper. It was the editor's intention that the new magazine should appeal to servant girls as well as young ladies of the middle class, but despite the inclusion of simple recipes and needlework instructions, the Girl's Own Paper became best known for its fiction. Special Christmas and Summer supplements, bound in pretty covers and featuring longer stories, were published to meet this demand.
