"PICTURE POST Magazine"

June 13, 1953

Picture Post was a prominent photojournalistic magazine published in the United Kingdom from 1938 to 1957. It is considered a pioneering example of photojournalism and was an immediate success, selling 1,700,000 copies a week after only two months. It has been called the Life magazine of the United Kingdom.

The magazine’s editorial stance was liberal, and from its inception Picture Post campaigned against the persecution of Jews in Nazi Germany. In the 26 November 1938 issue a picture story was run entitled "Back to the Middle Ages": photographs of Adolf Hitler, Joseph Goebbels and Hermann Göring were contrasted with the faces of those scientists, writers and actors they were persecuting.

This special issue deals with the pride of the United Kingdom and their new Queen. Published as a souvenir of the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. It is 10 1/2" x 13 1/2", with 102 pages plus cover. Articles, photographs, illustrations, and some great advertisements, -- all have to do with the Coronation. Including some wonderful photos of the event itself which have not been seen in many years.
