That's sad but understandable.
I hardly remember the magazine at all - saw very few - but did manage to locate and buy many of the annuals that came out; some years there were two: Photography Annual and Color Annual.
I had to go haunt the kiosk at Glasgow's Central Station all the time during the season when they were about due. I wonder if it's still there.
The thing about those annuals in the late 50s/early 60s was that they were a magnificent introduction to many photographers (Saul Leiter, W. Eugene Smith, Ernst Haas) I'd never have heard of in the UK. There was only one great UK photographic magazine at the time: Photography, edited by Norman Hall. That's where I picked up on HC-B, Brassai, Horvat, all of those greats working out of Paris. UK mags like Amateur Photographer were also helpful, but on an entirely different level: we moved into a house previously owned by a photographer when I was sixteen. He had left piles of APs in a cupboard beneath the stairs. I read 'em all, and learned so much about basic film and print processing and camera exposure therein. (That's just one more reason why I believe in predestination, and what's for you not going past you.)
Thing is, those Popular Photography Annuals were all about images and fantastic photographers, not technique. Meanwhile, back in the UK, AP was still printing pictures of guys dressed in heavy, ribbed sweaters, sitting, smoking pipes, and looking intently into the far distance of the studio wall. Karsh was still a hero for them.
Death of print? Probably, yes. Remove advertising and print becomes impossibly expensive to sell on cover price. I never produced magazines, of course, but I did produce a lot of calendars, and the maths was horrific, even back in the 80s. I used to 'joke' that I was in business to keep printers in business. But where does it end?
I accept the Luddite Prize of the month; no problem there at all! What we are seeing today is the path we have begun walking into the cul-de-sac called Redundant. When all of us get there, when we have all forgotten how to do anything from first principles, then what?
