Picture Post was a photojournalistic magazine published in the United Kingdom from 1938 to 1957. It was co-founded by Stefan Lorant and Sir Edward G. Hulton and was considered a pioneering example of photojournalism.

Approx 40 pages (80 sides). It measures approx 340x250mm (13.5x9.75inches). There is a little age yellowing. There are binding witness marks to the spine. Some of the pages are loose, and have handling marks, blemishes due to their age - anything more than minor will be mentioned in the main body of the description. The staples had been removed at some time. The images vary in size. PLEASE NOTE: I cannot guarantee that the issue is complete 'as published' - but what I have described above IS present. As far as I can tell there are no pages missing, so if you are looking for something in particular in this issue PLEASE ASK.

The above description details the content in my words and not necessarily what is written on the original page."Info." in the description is my research, although relevant to the accompanying image or article, is not necessarily in the text. This item will be packaged in a tube and sent RM small parcels.
