Gaiety Magazine

A monthly magazine subtitled 'A Magazine of Humour' published by the The Gaiety Magazine Publishing Company between Dec 1921 – Nov-1927 before merging with with The Sunny Mag. Edited between  1921 – 1926 by T.A. Price and between 1926 – 1927 by Arthur M. Turner.

Lowry refers to the Gaiety in a letter to Carol Brown dated April/May 1926 when he discusses the merits of being published by various magazines; "But 'Gaiety' 'The Humorist' 'The Passing Show' 'John O'London's Weekly', 'John Bull', and 'The London Opinion' are only too glad to receive and print jokes illustrated artistically." (Collected Letters Vol 1 Pg. 19)
