Beautiful Britons Magazine
Beautiful Britons 1955-1976 (252 issues)
Pocket format pin-up magazine that called itself 'The Magazine of Eye Appeal.' It specialised in photographs of ordinary women rather than models or film stars.
Beautiful Britons arose out of the magazine Spick. From the very first issue of Spick, there had been a monthly section devoted to amateurs sending in their photographs. They received two guineas for each picture published; something like an original "Readers Wives". This section was called Beautiful Britons and was so popular that it warranted a publication in its own right. From the start, Beautiful Britons was devoted almost entirely to Pin-Up sets; with none of the men's type articles or short stories that appeared in other magazines. I have not set out to show all the issues here, just a good selection.
