Saturday Night

Description: The storypaper Saturday Night was first published by James Elverson in 1865. Storypapers, also called "six-cent weeklies," were newspapers intended for the entire family and featured an array of serialized stories, poems, humor, sports, fashion, and current events. These papers enjoyed an enormous circulation: by 1892, Saturday Night claimed an audience of over 100,000 readers. Its serialized stories concentrated on love and marriage with much of the visual imagery devoted to female subjects. Format: 8 pages, with large, front-page illustration and additional images inside each issue.
