Model Housekeeping Magazine – Ireland, 1961

model-housekeeping-cover-1961Printed and published by Grafton Publications, NCR, Dublin 7, Model Housekeeping was a monthly A4 glossy magazine which, I believe, ran until 1969. This is from 1961 and, with it being the December issue, it is full of festive adverts and tips. For some reason the page numbering starts at 40! It has over 60 pages. Check out the Contents Page thumb below to get an idea of the range of content, much of which was complimentary reviews for goods advertised elsewhere in the magazine – see Shopping Tips scan below.
I will post more adverts from this later as we approach Christmas.
