4/1/1934 The Mystery Man of Soho
April 1, 1934. The issue of the British magazine Thriller with this cover date featured "The Mystery Man of Soho," by Margaret Allingham. It did not feature her upper class detective, Albert Campion. She republished it in her Minibus under the title "A Quarter of a Million." Nice cover.
