Let's Go Back In Time!
This pattern originally came from Welcome Woman’s Way magazine which launched in 1896 under the name Weekly Welcome and was published up until 1960 by W. & D. C. Thomson. The Welcome, as it became known, was launched on Monday, March 9, 1896, with 24 pages and it cost one penny. The Welcome was constructed around ‘powerful’ serial stories, and its link to its Scotland and north of England selling ground was quickly emphasised when it offered a five guinea prize for the best short story relating to these areas alone. It eventually placed women in a domestic role through articles on what to wear, household hints, tips for mothers and encouragement to take up a housewife’s duties, while at the same time furnishing them with page after page of fantasy, romantic fiction.
