For girls growing up in 1950's Britain, "Girl" was essential
reading. Each week there would be another gripping installment of
"Susan of St Brides - Nurse of the Year"; Lettice Leefe, the
greenest girl in the school, would get herself into heaps of
trouble; advice column "Mother Tells You How" would provide wise
words on how to pack for a holiday weekend; "Concerning You" would
reveal how to choose the most flattering spectacles and the Girl
Picture Gallery of lovely paintings to cut out and keep would
feature pin-ups of the day such as Humphrey Littleton and Princess
Margaret, and a variety of delightful woodland creatures and garden
birds. "The Best of "Girl"" is a fascinating window onto 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.
