It includes illustrated articles on

- Society news and
- a diary of talks and exhibitions.
In the latest issue, which publishes on or about 1st March 2019:
On the cover: London Transport (ex-LCC) E-class tram 543 is seen waiting at Parliament Hill Fields, the terminus of route 15 in north-west London, before the crew will take it back down to Moorgate. The scene was captured by W.A.Camwell in April 1938 but just three months later, in July, the tram was withdrawn and scrapped. The original black and white photograph was hand-coloured by the late Stan Letts.
