A Little Bit of History

A Nostalgic Look At Paying the Rates

I recently acquired lots of vintage women’s magazines dating from 1943-1952. It’s been great fun reading them. I love the articles, readers letters and patterns. The adverts are the most interesting. This article particularly caught my attention. It’s a light read by Marian Conway, about the different ways she’s raised money to pay the rates (does anyone still remember the rates office?) It really made me smile, so I thought I would share it. It’s from August 1948. I hope you enjoy it.

(By the way, the watermark ‘A Housewife’s Work’ is my other blog which can be found here.)
