October 1918 front cover

The Beacon was printed monthly and over the years, there were many beautiful hand-drawn illustrations used on the front cover.

Not every month had a different illustration but between 1917 and 1918 there were quite a few new front covers. After 1918, the front cover was standardised for years but there were still illustrations used in some of the features. Photographs were also used.

Here are some of the more ornate covers from the first two years of The Beacon.
