Freelance No.38 24th March 1937

Being a pictorial magazine, it has many photographs. There is just five here with good enough quality to show you from this issue. The magazine itself is quite interesting. It seems to focus on the Manuwatu, Wellington, Wanganui, Gisborne etc and aviation as a subject. There are plenty of society people depicted, a big sport section, movie stars and such but does tell the odd history story. Auckland had it's own pictorial magazine. I'll be sharing more of these issues as time goes on. Let me know if you find them interesting or underwhelming.

Paperspast has this magazine 1900 - 1909 whereas the copies I have are 1930's to 50's.
