The New York Times Magazine (June 1959)
Its first issue was published in 1896, and contained the first photographs ever printed in the newspaper. In the early decades it was a section of the broadsheet paper and not an insert as it is today. The creation of a "serious" Sunday magazine was part of a massive overhaul of the newspaper instigated that year by its new owner, Adolph Ochs, who also banned fiction, comic strips and gossip columns from the paper, and is generally credited with saving The New York Times from financial ruin.
This 1959 issue includes a photographic feature of Queen Elizabeth in Canada, as well as stunning ads for Amster beer and Fiat.
