A Tribute to Victoria Magazine!

I've posted photographs from a wedding exhibit held a year ago at the General John A. Logan Museum in Murphysboro, Illinois. The Civil War General's wife … who always referred to herself as Mrs. John A. Logan ... and never used her first name ... was an expert on etiquette during the Victorian era. She was an author and published one of the first American ladies’ magazines in the late 1800’s. I think Mary Logan would have loved Victoria!

Aren’t we lucky to have magazines … and especially magazines like Victoria. I especially remember the beautiful holiday issues … and one of my favorite Thanksgiving traditions was introduced in an early Victoria magazine. The story suggested that we traditionalists try at least one new thing on the annual Thanksgiving dinner menu. Several recipes were provided and I made one … tiny onion tarts. My dad, who had eaten the same Thanksgiving menu his whole life (short of the time he was in WWII) loved them and they became a new tradition on the annual menu!
