Little Folks Magazine Vol 64


Images from the collected issues of the magazine Little Folks for the year 1906.

The magazine was published by Cassell, Petter, Galpin & Co., in Britain, Canada, the USA and elsewhere. Because of this I’m marking the images as out of copyright; in any case it’s likely because the coyright holder appeared to have been the publisher and the engravings would be out of copyright either 50 or up to 75 years after publication in both the UK and Canada.

The artist Harry Rountryy did some of the illustrations; he died in 1950, and for the Canadian-published magazine I have that’s more than 50 years ago, placing his images in this magazine out of copyright.

The magazine was edited by Sam H. Hamer, possibly under the name S.H. Heeder.
