A New Girl Every Year

Two lovely Blackie's Girls' Annual covers from the 1930s.   I when I lived in England as a kid my grandparents frequently gave me an 'annual' for Christmas---tho' none from this series, which I believe may have been discontinued by the 1960s.   Had several Rupert books and a fascinating 1961 (?) 1962 (?) volume called Mainly For Children--with articles on all kinds of odd things.
