This week we’ve added 121,796 pages to The Archive.
Joining The Archive for the first time is The Mansfield Reporter. This Nottinghamshire paper joins five other titles for the county. Once digitisation is complete we plan to have issues from 1858 to 1937.
The Mansfield Reporter is invaluable for anyone researching topics touching on the East Midlands region. As might be expected the paper took a keen interest in the fate of the Sherwood Foresters regiment during the First World War.
The paper’s byline used a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson’s essay ‘Goethe, or, the Writer’ to give voice to high the ideals of journalism.
In the high refinement of modern life, in arts, in sciences, in books, in men, to exact good faith, reality and a purpose; and first, last, midst, and without end, to honor every truth by use.

For those interested in more recent events we have added issues from the 1970s to the Newcastle Evening Chronicle. This brings our coverage of this newspaper from 1914 to 1980. Modern papers are an excellent source for researching popular culture of the post-war period. In May 1975 the Newcastle Evening Chronicle reported on a potenial ban to a Bay City Rollers’ performance after ‘hysterical scenes’ at a previous concert at Newcastle City Hall resulted some fans being crushed and hospitalised.
