This week we’re bringing you 164,804 new pages from thirty-two newspapers from Ireland and the UK held in the collections of the British Library. This week our five brand new titles are: The Kilburn Times published in London; The Northern Constitution, also known as The Coleraine Constitution, published in Londonderry, Ireland; The Southend Standard and Essex Weekly Advertiser from Southend-on-Sea in Essex; The Staffordshire Chronicle from the county town of Stafford in Staffordshire and Wharfdale & Airdale Observer which was published in Otley, West Yorkshire.
|Southend Standard and Essex Weekly Advertiser||1873-1874, 1878, 1880-1888, 1890-1891|
|Staffordshire Chronicle||1887-1892, 1894-1896|
|Wharfedale & Airedale Observer||1880, 1900-1901, 1906-1907|
This week we also added new issues to twenty-seven existing titles. We’ve added more pages to three of our new titles from last week. The Ilford Recorder, Nelson Leader and Northwich Guardian have all had new years added.
We are also diligently filling gaps in some of our long-standing titles. All of this week’s titles come from the holdings of the British Library, and as always we are subject to copyright restrictions when publishing. This means that we do not publish material that is less than 107 years old without publisher permission.
