Men Only Magazine 1950 Cartoons & Ads

Nice find last week - for 99p. Founded by C. Arthur Pearson in 1935, it stated in the first issue: 'We don't want women readers. We won't have women readers...' ! That's women told then. Smutmonger Paul Raymond took it over in 1971, no doubt taking it to new lows, although I can't vouch for the quality of it's content before that, of course. There's just one very soft nude pic in this issue. I particularly like the second cartoon - bloody bohemians! There's an article on ferrets too. It's just called 'Ferrets'. Thus, town and country tastes were catered for, and it all seems pleasingly tame compared to what it turned into.
