The Girl's Own Paper


The Girl's Own Paper, later known as the Girl's Own Annual along with various other title changes, is part of the John MacKay Shaw Childhood in Poetry Collection at Florida State University.

The first weekly number of The Girl's Own Paper appeared on January 3, 1880. In October 1929, the title became The Girl's Own Paper and Woman's Magazine but in 1930 the Woman's Magazine became a separate publication. The publication ceased by the mid 1950s. In its original form, the magazine included short stories and educational and improving articles for girls and young women in the United Kingdom.
