  1. Ashton Reporter

    A publication from Ashton under Lyne, the town which invented chips and fish and witnessed the Shaw family of brewers which spread to Merseyside and other towns in Lancashire such as Leigh. The Shaw family spawned an MP and local mayors. The Shaws were munificently generous leaving property and land to local residents and were generally very charitable.

      • Tit-Bits, Answers, Pearson's Weekly, and Ally Sloper's Half Holiday

        Some of the best-selling weekly newspapers from the nineteenth century have yet to be digitised. Tit-Bits, Answers, Pearson's Weekly, and Ally Sloper's Half Holiday all sold hundreds of thousands of copies each week and had an enormous influence on Victorian culture. I occasionally tweet example from my own bound volumes of these periodicals and I've lost count of the times that people have asked me where they can find them online.

        • Newspapers from the St. Helens, Warrington & Wigan area.

          This area of South West Lancashire has over 750,000 inhabitants but no local newspaper coverage in the archive. The Manchester & Liverpool newspapers are great for the regional picture but poor on local stories.

                              • More Cumbrian Titles!

                                Apart from one year of the Kendal Mercury, I've been waiting an age for some Cumbrian publications.
                                The Carlisle Journal hasn't seen any additions since the first few weeks of your launch.
                                As for new publications, I would love to see some editions of the West Cumberland Times or the short-lived Wigton Advertiser.
                                By the way, a fantastic site bringing to light my fantastic ancestors!
