Charles Buchan, 1951-60

 

The original football magazine first appeared in September 1951, running with modifications until the summer of 1974 when it was replaced by the 'new' Football Monthly.  Generally regarded as the daddy of modern football magazines, we can offer many early issues from the early 1950's onwards. In this section you will find details of magazines from the initial issue through to December 1960. Details of the front cover and colour central page feature (first appeared in November 1957) are listed in brackets after the date of each issue.
