The Illustrated Homecoming Souvenir Issue Magazine 1954 was published to celebrate the return of Queen Elizabeth II from the tour of the Commonwealth.

Packed full of photo's and news articles, this is a wonderful old magazine that would appeal to collectors of vintage magazines, Royal memorabilia, old advertising ephemera and anyone who enjoys reading about current events of the times.

There are some great old advertisements in the old magazine including cigarette adverts, sweet ads and an interesting Dunlop advert.

The news articles in the mag are interesting and well worth a read, there's a great magazine article about the famous actor Marlon Brando when he was at his peak.

The magazine article about fingerprinting is very interesting and explains about the early days of using forensic examinations to capture criminals.

This old magazine is in not too bad a condition considering its over 50 years old and there's are some aging 'issues' but nothing too bad. Ideal for a collector of ephemera, advertising, Royal memorabilia or magazine news articles, there is something here for everyone.
