Publishing the Trinity Mirror Archive

This week we are pleased to announce a major development in our ongoing partnership with Trinity Mirror.  Over the next two years, we will publish upwards of 12 million pages from the Trinity Mirror archive.

We have already started work on this exciting project and you can now read the Birmingham Daily Gazette to 1956, The Birmingham Post to 1972, and the Daily Herald to 1961.

Digitisation is well underway at our studio in Boston Spa, with up to 100,000 pages being scanned each week. The project builds on our existing partnership with Trinity Mirror that has already resulted in the digitisation and online publication of 130 Trinity Mirror titles, including significant coverage of both world wars. Published online for the very first time, these war-time publications also included the Archive’s first national titles, the Daily Mirror and the Daily Herald.

Join us on this exciting journey to bring you history as it happened.

  • Will the northern edition of the Daily Mirror be part of this, please? If so this would be marvellous.

    • Hello Victoria, the audit of the Trinity Mirror is ongoing. To hear the latest news of titles being added, sign up to receive our regular emails and check back here on our blog.

  • Great news!
    Can you be a bit more specific about the titles and dates of the newspapers to be included in the Trinity Mirror Archive?

  • Great effort, especially welcome for national papers, which have been neglected in past in favour of regionals

  • I wish you would digitize something that would be useful to mining historians world wide, for example the Mining Journal, instead of short runs of local newspapers..

  • Why the missing gaps with the Sunday post

  • Hopefully such a commercial arrangement will allow an investment to be made into the poor coverage of some regions; maybe you could also look at whether now is the time to share more information about up-coming plans, which remain frustratingly secret. If so, can you give any clarity on the progress/plans of the Warrington Guardian?

  • Fantastic news. I am interested to see if The Southport Visiter will be included as they are part of Trinity Mirror.

  • Are the Historic Hamilton Advertiser archives going to ge digitised?

  • Fantastic news. It would be great if this was to include Daily Mirror, Sunday People, Manchester Evening News etc

    One of the best parts of day is checking new titles and upcoming coverage.

    Keep up the fantastic work

  • This is good news but I’d love to see you scannng specialty items that are in fragile condition such as Our Cats from the late 1890s or Fur and Feather. Such publications hold valuable information for people and the information in them can be lost if the publication disintegrates before capture.

  • Would it be possible to publish a list of the titles that this project will cover?

  • When will we see some more titles from Cumberland.this is my area of interest but there is practibly nothing.Also how about the Sporting Life,

  • It would be great to see some of the Salford and district (Eccles etc) papers online.
    A densely packed area with a remarkable history, Salford’s newspapers are a serious omission from this amazing resource.

  • please can we have the south notts echo its the only paper that ever covered even part of our town of Arnold in Nottinghamshire.Eeven though Arnold has been around for over 1000yrs its never had its own paper. The south notts echo is the only one even to mention the town.

  • Great to hear now you can finally add the Stoke Sentinel and the Derby Telegraph upwards to the 1980s

  • Thank goodness for that now it gives you ample opportunity to add the Manchester Evening News, Wolverhampton Express and Star and Stoke Sentinels like you have with two Newcastle papers bizarrely whilst neglecting many other regions
