Book Description

2 Oct 2006 Girl
For a teenage girl growing up in 1950s' Britain, "Girl" was essential reading. Each week there'd be another gripping serial installment; advice column "Mother Tells You How" would provide wise words on how to care for goldfish; "Concerning You" would reveal how to choose spectacles that suit your face and the Girl picture gallery of lovely paintings to cut out and keep would feature pin-ups of the day such as Humphrey Littleton, Princess Margaret and various garden birds. "The Best of Girl" is a fascinating window on this hilariously wholesome bygone age of fine upstanding virtue for those too young to remember it, and a completely compulsive nostalgia trip for those who aren't.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgia trip 18 April 2008
By Karen
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I loved revisiting the characters from Girl. But why no 'Susan of St Brides'? It was mentioned on the cover and the blurb specified the story 'Nurse of the Year' which was the first Susan story to appear in the paper itself. What a disappointment that it was missing! is there any way I can get a facsimile? Did it ever appear in an annual? Any suggestions welcome.
