St. Nicholas Magazine

Browsing through Flickr, I accidently came across a wonderful photoset of an scans from an old children's magazine called 'St.Nicholas Magazine' - These scans are maintained by a wonderful flickrite called Al. Q.

The illustrations in them are amazing and very, very detailed. In many places, it almost looks like a photograph. It is kind of surprising that there was a market for children's magazine in 1890's. I wonder how many they would have sold?

I will leave you all with some of my favourite illustrations in the photoset and request you to head over there and spend some great time with your kids. I am sure they would love them.

If you are into illustrations, love the illustrations in children's books or just love black and white sketches like me - you would enjoy this immensely.
