Hot off the press – pages added this week

We’re finishing the year with a bang, this week we reached twenty-three million pages in The Archive, having added 285,684 pages in the past two weeks.

Sports Argus – Saturday 30 July 1966

This week we’ve added more pages to our Trinity Mirror collection, with significant additions to The Coventry Evening Telegraph and The Coventry Herald.   We hope sports fans will enjoy our additions to Sports Argus which now runs to 1979 and includes coverage of the 1966 FIFA World Cup Final.

We continue to add to our regional titles for England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.  We’ve recently added ten years to the Hereford Journal and six years to the Scottish Ayr Advertiser.
