Once upon a time there lived a Queen! Queen Magazine in the Sixties (Part 1)

Once upon a time there lived a Queen!

Queen Magazine 
in the 1960s

I'm lucky enough to own a small collection of Queen Magazines dating from the mid to late 1960s. Some were a  little the worse for wear when I originally acquired them, and unfortunately after many years and more house moves than I care to remember..they're all looking a little bit more the worse for wear now! But..still beautiful, even if they are a somewhat ragged around the, before they disintegrate any further, I've finally found the time to scan and preserve them..I'm using the term scan 'loosely' because after much frustration I actually ended up having to photograph them, as my flatbed scanner wasn't quite large enough to capture the entire cover image without losing either half of the Q or half of the N..and on a couple of occasions a bit of both! Anyhow, my inner geek (which I now know resides just below the surface) wasn't entirely happy with the result! But finally.... after several hours, and several cups of tea, here they are, or should I say, here are some of them...a photographic tale of Queen Magazine in the sixties. (to be continued).

  1. Oh goodness, I love Queen magazine. I have a few later Sixties issues, which I treasure. x

  2. My grandma had two issues from either 1963-64 but I was not quick enough to get them before my sister snagged them and claimed them hers when my grandmother moved out. But I have gotten a number of her woman's own books including a cover with Jean Shrimpton on it.

  3. Very cool, I don't own any but do have a Sixties in Queen book. I do love the bubble perm in the second pic... xx
