    Peg’s Companion    (about)
    Peg’s Companion was a UK women’s magazine, slightly smaller than The Weekly Tale-Teller, saddle stapled, paper closer to newsprint than to pulp. It ran for 572 issues from Nov 1921 to Oct 1932 and was a companion magazine to Peg’s Paper. It’s listed by Lofts and Adley as a girl’s paper, I’d argue the first part of that point - it seems to be aimed at young working class women.
