Le Soir Illustré
Le soir Illustré is a magazine that appeared between 1928 and 2002. It was published by ‘Groupe Rossel’ and was therefore an extension of the newspaper ‘Le Soir’. In 2002, it was renamed Le Soir Magazine, only to change its name again in 2015, this time to ‘Soir Mag’.
As the title suggests, there are a lot of pictures in this magazine. The themes covered are less of a political-economic nature, but paint a good picture of how the day-to-day life of ordinary people was. Thus, the magazine offers a rich wealth of information to anyone interested in historical sociology.
