Jack and Jill [1885]

Total Issues: 121

First published as a very young audience, the focus switched to an older reader from as early as issue 8. "Described as an illustrated paper for boys and girls, very large in size, which contained stories, jokes and cartoons. Towards the end it contained stories and articles for more adult tastes. In No.114 it announced "When Jack and Jill was first launched, its intention was to cater for a somewhat juvenile public, but for some time past, a desire has been evinced by our readers for a more adult class of literature and illustration than has been given; so from next week to make the title more representative of the character of its contents, it has been decided that Jill's name shall disappear, and future issues will be called Jack's Journal, an illustrated miscellany for everybody." (W.O.G. Lofts) The changeover occurred with issue 115 (14-May-1887), but only lasted for seven issues.
