Photo Story

I never read Jackie magazine - I wasn't really the target audience - but I do know that girls' magazines of my youth used to feature little stories in comic-book form, created by compiling photographs of love-struck teenagers (some of the best people starred, apparently).

You know what's coming next, don't you?

This is from the 'Play Pictorial' 1902 (which contains the whole story, over twenty pages) ... 'Lady Sylvia - I had no idea you were so ... imaginative ...' ... the hussy!
