The First Birthday of the British Newspaper Archive – 29 November 2012

Posted on November 29th, 2012 by The British Newspaper Archive

It’s our first birthday today!

For it was on this day last year that a gallimaufry of Victorian news girls and boys (see the photo and video below) officially launched the website at King’s Cross Station, London.

To celebrate the day, we’re going to post some stories on the blog about famous events and birthdays that have taken place on the 29th of November.

Oh, and we’re also celebrating the fact that the number of pages in the Archive is just short of 6 million.
