The Home (1920-42)

The Home was launched by Sydney Ure Smith in February 1920. In its own words, The Home was “Australia’s de luxe periodical of general interest,” and the magazine compared favorably to its well-known American contemporaries Vogue and Vanity Fair. At its height, print runs reached 7,500 (compared to 126,000 copies of the mass magazine Australian Women’s Weekly sold in 1928), but its exclusiveness was part of its cachet, and it was a highly significant part of Australia’s interwar culture, especially in the ways in which it merged art with commerce. From 1925 to 1931, each October issue was a dedicated travel number, in which travelogues and travel writing mixed with highlights of particular Australian and overseas destinations, advice on shipping lines and other modes of transport, accommodation, and sights of note.
