The very first October issue of Victoria debuted in 1988. The second issue, which came out in the fall of 1987, was a 1987/1988 Winter issue. The first actual October issue came along a year later to usher in the golden season of 1988. With such phrases on the cover as "Autumn... A Sentimental Journey" and "Gathering Golden Moments," we knew that when we opened the cover we would be greeted with beautiful articles in glowing tones.
As always, she would not disappoint. From articles on ferns, to fabulous fashion layouts resembling some Agatha Christie movie set, to the delectable food displays, to the "Leaves" section by Jenny Walton (this one is a particular prize, as it relates to a teacher who inspired Jenny Walton -- aka Nancy Lindemeyer -- to read) this one is a gem in warm hues.
Thank you for taking a sentimental journey along with me, as we fondly remember the early days of what would become a treasured magazine.
