We’re very pleased to announce that the British Newspaper Archive has just crossed the 7 million page rubicon.
The special page that brought up the magic number on the old BNA odometer is a page from ‘The Burnley Express’ of Saturday 30 June 1945 – and you can view page 7,000,000 for FREE.
On this page, you can read all about Winston Churchill visiting Burnley – and you can view photos of the famous visit. You can also read some fascinating readers’ letters on the subjects of politics, democracy, wages, soldiers and brass bands. The page also contains photos and profiles of local servicemen, and an article on the cost of living and the need for decent pensions – plus ca change.
To view page 7 million, just click here or click on the newspaper image below.
