Access to fulltexts of the Penny Magazine. The Penny Magazine, published every Saturday, was aimed at the working class. It was part of the Society for the Diffusion of Useul Knowledge's program for liberal reform. for its reader, however, it was a source of information on subjects of general interest: everyday things like tea and coffee, well-known places in England, a series on animals and birds of Britain, descriptions of prsent-day manufacturing, even an American alaman and a serial of a personal account of an immigrant's problems. Poetry was published, too, and there are several illustrations in each issue.
