Last year I ran an “advent calendar” on the website featuring adverts from Victorian era issues taken from my collection of the Illustrated London News.
This year, I am repeating the calendar – but based on adverts printed in the newspaper during the month of December exactly 100 years ago – in 1912, the Edwardian era.
Each day I will display an advert from my collection of the Illustrated London News for your delight.
