The Sydney Mail was an Australian magazine published weekly in Sydney.[1] It was the weekly edition of The Sydney Morning Herald newspaper and ran from 1860 to 1938.[2]

History[edit]

The Sydney Mail was first published on 17 July 1860 by John Fairfax and Sons.[3][4] In 1871 the magazine was renamed for the first time, and it was published as The Sydney Mail and New South Wales Advertiser from 1871 to 1912.[5] In 1912 it reverted to its original name, The Sydney Mail, and was published under this masthead until 28 December 1938 when the magazine ceased publication.[4][6] It was published on a weekly basis and became known for its illustrations.[4]
