1914 Russian Women's magazine
« on: August 18, 2011, 08:55:15 PM »
I have  a  Russian women's magazine from ,I believe, April of 1914. It's interesting to see such a publication from pre WW1 Russia.
 We can have no idea if the family saw this, but they could have...that's the fun part. Plus it informs us of their world . I'm posting the fashion pages, but it has sheet music and short stories as well.

Does the Russian magazine have 'serious' articles as well? And what music did they print?

Indeed, Sunny, these magazines were very important to their readers ....I'm not surprised some were with your great - grandmother's items . Ann ,I'll post the music this evening...it's hard for me to tell if there is serious comment since I don't read Russian...but judging by the illustration, I'd say perhaps a page or two. A good deal of short story writing though.

In Italian magazines they were generally short love stories, not very serious ones, indeed. But i don't know in Russian editions - if Anne posts them i'll try to translate them.

How serious is serious? I'm thinking of articles on education and the like - the political situation was probably a bit too controversial for Russia in 1914!

Actually I think  part of the attraction of such publications is as an escape from that! lol! By serious I mean ( judging from the illustrations ) I would say more in line with a woman's duty to set morel tone etc.  But as Sunny points out in the Italian counterpart, love stores dominate ....same here .

Thanks Mike, I will post the sheet music and some  samples...the table of content would be interesting if translated.  But can you tell me what the cover says? What is the magazine's name? Thanks

Thank you Sunny! ^^

 Helen A just sent me this translation as well

Literary-Art Family Journal   "Woman"  April 1914  edition#7, 15 kopecks

I wonder if  15 kopecks was alot. I'm impressed by the colour cover in 1914!

Back in 1914 in St.-Petersburg, 15 kopecks could buy you a two-course lunch in a cheap tavern or a cup of coffee in a fashionable cafe.

Yes. In Argentina we also had these kind of magazines. The most famous one was named "El Hoga-Revista para la mujer y la família " ("Home- a magazine for the woman and the family"). It had very similar setions that the Russion magazine that was posted here. It had fashion articles, but also history, politics, music and pics of Argentine more traditional  families. I've purchased a lot of these in fly markets and they are great to read.
