I love the smell of old books and newspapers, and love being able to read news and gossip directly from the source as opposed to modern-day interpretations, so I was excited when Thomas Walker of Historic Newspapers contacted me asking if I’d like a few newspapers from their impressive archive. I said yes, of course, and received a copy of the Daily Mirror from 1917 and a copy of the Daily Mail from 1912. I’ve scanned a few pages for my no doubt curious readers! Click on the images to see them in full!
I highly recommend this company if you’d like copies of old newspapers ranging as far back as two hundred years. Now that I have my copies in my hands, I am definitely going back to order more from different dates!
Thant looks fun!
Thanks for this, Evangeline – fascinating! You would love the London Library, which has huge bound volumes of The Times going back to the 1860s, I think – but The Mirror isn’t quite so dry and dusty! Love the mix of factual reporting and society gossip even in the middle of war…
Beautiful! Love old newspapers too.
