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 edges..so, 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).
