This England

A friend passed a few This England magazines on to me and I've enjoyed every one of them. Each brought with them a little nostalgia. In particular the Forget Me Nots section which readers contribute to with their memories of England (more often than not of the 1950s).

The magazine started with the slogan "As refreshing as a cup of tea!" Later issues described themselves as "For all those who love this green and pleasant land", and "Britain's loveliest magazine since 1968."

Articles include Exploring English Surnames, English Excursions, The Royal History of England and London Pride along with beautiful pictures.

Look out for these, whether you are from England or enjoy looking at quaint country villages and learning a little of the history, they are a great read. Occasionally, I've found them at Half Price Book stores.

I'd never heard of this magazine. I'm going to check it out. Thanks for letting me know you stopped by my blog - it's appreciated.
