Advance New Plymouth [magazine]

Production date
Circa 1950
A magazine titled 'Advance New Plymouth'. Little is known about the magazine, including the date of publication. Those associated with the publication are described as: Advertising Manager, Eric (The Little) Martagh; Contact Manager, Erin (Incognito) Kivell; Editor, Muggins Mustang (The Lone Suffering); Sub-Editor, Honest Hal (Honest? Hell!!); Publishers: Birdcage, Tinwhistle and Incorrigible (Unlimited); Photos by, Brandin' Iron (Bar 20 N.P.). The magazine appears to be a satirical commentary on the lack of advancement of the city of New Plymouth: "Blessed is New Plymouth which can offer to the millions of lucky visitors who frequent our city streets each year, accommodation and refreshment comparable with that of any country in the world, south of Invercargill". The magazine also contains various cartoons relating to New Plymouth and, probably, unauthorised advertisements for local businesses.
