The Young Ladies' Journal

1892--Whether a reader was concerned with her weight, the hair on her face or the thinning hair on her head, she could find a solution in the Young Ladies' Journal. This popular 19th century periodical, covering the fashion and lifestyles of London's Victorian-era women, influenced the shopping behavior of the fast-growing market of status-conscious consumers, who now had access to ready-to-wear clothing in department stores like Harrod's and Selfridges.
