The BNA Passes the 6 Million Page Mark – and Page Number 6 Million Is Available for Free!

Posted on November 30th, 2012 by The British Newspaper Archive

It was a long day and night watching the old odometer (drink in hand), but we’re thrilled to announce that the homepage counter on the website has just passed the 6 million page mark. And we’re thrilled to have reached another big milestone in the project.

The 6th millionth page to arrive on the BNA website was page three of the ‘Manchester Evening News’. So to celebrate reaching this milestone, we’ve set this page as a FREE page to all registered users. If you’re not already registered, registration is free and only takes a few seconds – then you can view this page for free.

Two headlines of that day were about heavy casualties in the First World War and the stoppage of horse racing due to a shortage of oats. But there are many other stories, too – so why not have a read of the page and see what you can discover.

To view the page, just click on this link below or on the image.
