Victorian newspapers and Lloyd's List | The British Newspaper Archive Blog


Hot off the press – new titles this week

This week we spent some time consolidating our existing titles.  We have updates to ten existing titles including the ever popular Lloyd’s List.  We have added 97,426 pages in the last 7 days.

We have added one brand new title to The Archive: The West Middlesex Herald.   With over 1,500 issues spanning 1855 to 1895 this is a valuable addition to The Archive for the mid to late Victorian period.  We have this paper from its first edition on Saturday 9 June 1855.   The paper was initially published weekly on a Saturday.  In the 1890s the paper moved to three times a week before being absorbed into The Middlesex & Surrey Express.

Updated Titles

This week we’ve added to 10 existing titles.  The new additions include extensive coverage for the Kinross-shire Advertiser, including the period of the First World War.  We have also added 9 years to the Northampton Chronicle and Echo, and 9 years to the ever popular Lloyd’s List.
