A parody of magazines like Autotrader, selling used cars via classified ads. Instead, this is the cover of a magazine called Wife Trader, with thousands of local spouse bargains each week! The image was scanned from ‘The Joy of Sexism.’ It features wives ranging from Mrs. Simpkins, a ‘good solid reliable wife’ at £3.50 (or near offer) to Mrs. Anderson, ‘a real head-turner, reluctant sale due to affair with milkman’ at £400.
