AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The Home was launched in February, 1920, as a quarterly. It is ten years since the first issue was printed, and it is interesting, in looking back, to realise just exactly what has been accomplished in that time...To some it may seem presumptuous for the Editors of The Home to become retrospective at the end of a decade, but when one considers the many attempts to create and carry on decently-produced periodicals within even that time, they may be forgiven for feeling a trifle elated, for the moment, with their particular success. We have always had confidence in the Australian public's appreciation of any production which can at least equal similar work from abroad - and in many respects the Editors feel The Home can stand comparison with the best journals published in London and New York...The Home stands for quality in Australia. It has created a standard of taste. It has become the authority on what is best. No considerations have caused it to lower its standard at any time, with the result that it is recognised as the premier journal of good taste in the Commonwealth and its advice is accepted without question on matters concerning interior decoration, domestic architecture, garden planning and works of art.'
