The passing of excellence

Having a spring clean here and came across some 1939 editions of Practical Mechanics.
What a joy to have a mag that is full of a variety of topics to
the amateur engineer, from Radio to machining.
ISTR that Model engineer was such a magazine in the 1950s, before model boats, model aircraft, and workshop practices etc were hived off into other revenue earning streams.
Is there really a market these days for so many mags, each with a reducing no of advertising pages, and with editorial following the same route?
Would we all be better off with just one mag of a rich and varied content?
