FOR SALE: Parade Magazine, Australia’s Early History Magazine

Issued monthly, Australia’s ‘Parade’ magazine claims to have “25 great, true stories from history” in every issue. While I wasn’t personally familiar with Parade magazine prior to recently … trust me, if you’re into Australian history, you WILL find these fascinating.

With each issue around 60 pages, the stories together with the regular features such As Things Were, Know Your Ancestors, Parade Post, Book Reviews, and the Paradewords crossword make for fascinating reading. Just as the Inside History magazine is Australia’s current history and genealogy magazine, the Parade magazine was back then. Although I don’t know the exact timeframe that it was produced, we have issues ranging from 1968-1980.

In browsing through a few issues, there are stories of men who were awarded VCs, and other military related articles, stories of sports men and their remarkable feats, stories of good men and bad women (and vice versa), convicts and politicians, pioneers, novelists, incidents from history, early inventions, stories of regional towns and more. You’ll find stories on Charles Kingston ‘Smithy’ Smith, and Elizabeth Woolcock who was the only white woman to be hanged in South Australia.

For all with a love of Australian history and heritage, we have to thank our Australian ‘Parade’ magazine for recording such remarkable stories.

    Hi Annaliesse, thanks you for your message. We’re not interested in the set of Parade Magazines, but you could try sell them to a secondhand/antiquarian bookseller, or alternatively try sell them online through ebay or similar.
