Old Magazine Articles is a PDF collection of wonderfully nostalgic magazines that have been lovingly scanned and indexed by Matt Jacobsen for our enjoyment. It’s an eclectic mix, ranging from World War I to silent movies, but the real pleasure comes not so much from the subject matter as from the voyeuristic glimpse into another age. Perfect browsing for a rainy Sunday.
OldMagazineArticles.com is a private undertaking and the effort of one old magazine enthusiast in particular who believes deeply that today’s readers of history can learn a good deal from the old periodicals. It is a primary source website and is designed to serve as a reference for students, educators, authors, researchers, dabblers, dilettantes, hacks and the merely curious. The old articles, essays, poetry, cartoons and photographs that can be found on the site have all been collected from a number of different libraries, bookshops and yard sales throughout the United States and Europe.
