Old Newspaper Headlines
There's no need to settle for just the headlines when you can get the complete newspaper! Old Newspapers have fast become a hugely popular commemorative keepsake that can be treasured by the recipient for years to come. People simply cannot believe that the newspaper is a genuine original and is still in the same perfect condition as the day it was printed.
Some of the most popular events, dates and occasions to give old newspapers as gifts on include birthday and anniversary dates, or special milestones like a graduation or retirement. Revisiting these personal dates of importance through the news reported at the time offers an authentic and unrivalled insight into the past. This wave of nostalgia and trip down memory lane is what contributes to making Old Newspapers such unique gifts that can be referred to and enjoyed for years to come as they're passed on through future generations.
The entire collection of old newspapers held in the archive is currently over 7 million, making it the world's largest private archive that spans a range of dates back to the 17th century. The most comprehensive coverage is from over the last 100 years and a newspaper can almost be guaranteed for any day dating back to 1900. There is also a range of titles to choose from for the majority of dates, many of which are specific to certain regions, or have even long since been discontinued, making them that bit more personal and special for the person receiving them.
Every old newspaper is not only checked for it's quality but also to ensure that it is a legitimate genuine original, and not a reprint or copy made at a later date. This also means that all our old newspapers are becoming increasingly rare as once a particular title or date is sold out then a replacement is unlikely to be sourced. Remember that these are genuine originals and not copies of old newspapers. Previously the archive was been built from collections held by a range of institutions around the world including libraries and universities from as far a field as Australia and America.
