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.
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!
