April 1917 issue of The Modern Priscilla – cover and first few pages
Apparently this ladies’ home and house keeping magazine’s issue was just published right before the United States entered World War I in April of 1917. The theme of this month’s issue of The Modern Priscilla was “Weddings”. I’m loving the old fashion advertisements in this end-of-the-Edwardian period women’s magazine, and also the embroidery and crochet lace patterns and tutorials.
I’m attempting to scan all the pages of this magazine. My scanner isn’t quite big enough; the margins of this old magazine are just barely as big as my scanner bed is. If you’d like a full resolution image, please ask me- I intend on compiling and selling prints for educational use.
