I has a Pearson's

Not the bound volume of Pearson's Weekly I'm expecting, but a nice single issue of Pearson's Magazine from 1906, with all of the original advertising in very clean condition. There's even a vaguely SF story in it, which appears to be about the Earth ceasing to rotate with Britain (of course) stuck in the bit that's going to freeze. Happy scanning fun ahead!

Later - and it has ads for electric belts, vacuum hair restorers, bust expansion cream, Jiu-Jitsu lessons, and all sorts of other things I haven't seen before. And amazingly no Rowlands' Macassar Oil!
