We had a bumper week at the Archive this past week, we added 205,942 pages and are now just 200,000 pages from twenty-two million pages in the Archive. We have three brand new titles joining the Archive this week. One each for England, Scotland and Wales. We have also updated fourteen existing titles.
The Welsh newspaper the Denbighshire Free Press was also know as the Denbigh, Ruthin and Vale of Clwyd Free Press, Denbighshire, Flintshire and Merionethshire News, a name which gives a clearer picture of its wide geographic reach. The paper is an excellent source for the news of North Wales and described itself as ‘an independent journal for all classes and parties’.
The Worthing Herald for West Sussex offers coverage of the south-eastern portion of England. A seaside town sandwiched between Brighton in the east and Bognor Regis in the West Worthing was a popular retreat in the early 1800s. During the Second World War young Canadian soldiers were stationed in the town, this resulted in more than one marriage for the local girls!
