Evil Literature……

 

In 1926 Ireland, the Catholic Church was so concerned about saving souls that they established a committee to decide which publications should be deemed as “sordid” and “objectionable”

The good fathers decided upon the following titles:
Woman`s World
Woman`s Realm
The Sporting Life
Girls Companion
Home Companion
News of the World
Vogue
The People
And rather bizarrely, The Illustrated Police News.
