The British Newspaper Archive (BNA) continues to add newspaper titles and issues to its database.
The BNA says: “Here are a few of the many new titles and issues that have just been added to the site:
New Title – The Staffordshire Advertiser
“The latest newspaper to be added to the website for the Midlands is The Staffordshire Advertiser, from 1801 to 1839. Established by Joshua Drewry (c.1773-1841) in Stafford in 1795, the paper became the main county newspaper for Staffordshire. To add to the sense of history, we’ve published some interesting biographical information about the colourful Drewry and his newspaper on the BNA blog.
New Title – The Shoreditch Observer
“For the London area, we’ve just added The Shoreditch Observer for 1863 to the website. With the wonderful strapline, ‘A journal of local intelligence for Bishopsgate, St. Luke, Hackney, Kingsland, Bethnal-Green, and the Tower Hamlets’, The Shoreditch Observer contains an excellent round-up of local news, adverts and notices.
New Issues – The Western Gazette (1950)
“With this latest addition, you can now read the The Western Gazette from 1863 right through to 1950. So if you’re carrying out historical research for Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire, Hampshire and Berkshire, then this weekly newspaper will certainly help you with your searches.
New Issues – The Evening Telegraph of Dundee (1904)
“Still in publication, this paper is affectionately known by Dundonians as The Tully. With the addition of the 1904 issues, it’s now possible to read this Dundee institution from 1877 to 1904.”
