Hot off the press – papers added this week

The Archive continues to grow at an amazing pace.  We’ve added 145,914 pages to twenty-two newspapers since our last update.  The archive now holds 698 newspapers for the UK and Ireland.  Our additions this week include nine brand new titles and additions to thirteen existing titles.

Our brand new titles this week include four titles for Scottish counties: Aberdeenshire, Lanarkshire, Angus (Forfanshire) and Wigtownshire. There are four new papers for England, two of which are from London (Fulham & Hampstead), one for Worcestershire and one for West Yorkshire. Finally we are delighted to add a new national title for Ireland, the Irish Independent.
