B.C. School Magazine (1930)

BC School Magazine Vol. 1 No. 1

Vol. 1 No. 1 September 1930

I know very little about this pair of British Columbia School Magazines published in September and November of 1930 (Vol. 1 No. 1 & Vol. 1 No. 2).  They were published by the Department of Education and on the inside front cover is the statement: “Authorized by the Council of Public Instruction for use in the Schools of British Columbia“.

Each magazine measures 6″ x 9” and sports a very colourful and patriotic cover.  Issue No. 1 contains 20 pages and features a photo of the first Parliament Buildings, which were often referred to as the Bird Cages due to their shape.  Issue No. 2 is 16 pages long and the cover photo shows the present day Parliament Buildings which were opened in 1898.

BC School Magazine Vol. 1 No. 2

Vol. 1 No. 2 November 1930

Issue No. 1 contains 7 articles including The History of the Parliament Buildings, Trafalgar Day Oct. 21 1805, The King and The First Non-Stop Flight Across the Atlantic.  Issue No. 2 contains 6 articles including Armistice Day Nov. 11, A Story About the Prince of Wales and How British Columbia Received its Name (spoiler: Queen Victoria chose it!).

I have no idea how long this magazine was published for.  If you have any information please leave a comment!
