  2. 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.

    As well as being packed with entertaining content, these papers also conducted a lot of competitions and other forms of reader interaction - this often resulted in readers' names…

  4. (Great) Yarmouth Independent 1857 to WW2

    Great Yarmouth in Victorian times was a major seaside resort and herring fishery. This paper is full of interesting facts. We have a thriving local research group which uses the hard copies of the paper regularly. Unfortunately they are in a poor state

  5. Lloyd's List

    As this country was once the biggest maritime nation in the world would it not seem reasonable that this important shipping newspaper , Lloyd's Listshould be added.

  7. see below if I've put it in the right spot??

    Arthur Lismer sent images of the damage from the December 6th, 1917 Explosion of the munitions vessel Mont-Blanc to the Sheffield Independent which published them. I would estimate that they appeared in the last week of 1917 or in the month of January 1918. Have these issues been digitized or are 35 mm microfilm copies available for interlibrary loan? These images og pen & ink sh=ketches should be quite easy to spot sine I expect that there were three or four used in the Sheffield Independent??

    Regards

    Alan Ruffman

  9. Weston-super-Mare Gazette

    It would be good to have digital access to the Gazette from its first publication in 1845 to its closure in the post-war years.

  11. Shields Daily News

    Shields Daily News
    The Shields Daily Gazette is included but that covers SOUTH Shields. You have nothing at all for NORTH Shields, a comparable town immediately across the River Tyne. What have you got against us North Shielders! We ask no more than to be treated equally!!

  12. Glasgow Evening News

    Excellent newspaper, provided more detailed coverage of the Glasgow area than did the Glasgow Herald.

  14. Ross-shire and the Western Isles

    Almost 10 million pages available - a great total and resource, but some counties (such as my own areas of interest, Ross-shire and the Western Isles) have yet to get off the mark. Can this be looked at so we have some basic coverage of the whole country? Thanks

  16. Add the Ardrossan & Saltcoats Herald

    So useful for Scottish researchers, covers all of Ayrshire and that's an area that needs much more coverage!

  18. More Carlisle newspaper editions

    Please add more early years for the Carlisle Patriot and Carlisle Journal. The Patriot currently only runs from 1817-1820 plus about 3 editions from January 1821 as well as some random later years. The Carlisle Journal has 1847 and 1849 missing in its run from 1833-1866. It would be nice to have the whole of the 19th century covered without gaps by one or the other of the Carlisle papers.
