1912 Headlines

Our collection of 1912 news articles reflects a year in history characterised by political uncertainty, social activism and bloody war in Europe. Tragedy struck in April 1912 when the RMS Titanic hit an iceberg and sank. Over 1600 people died, making this one of the most major events in 1912 news, and in history.

Women still hadn’t been awarded the right to vote, and the suffragettes were getting restless. Their riots and protests often graced the front of newspapers, as the public reaction was divided. The Balkan wars began, when, in October, Montenegro declared war on the Ottoman Empire. The following few months saw a lot of bloodshed and the first cracks appearing as the Ottoman Empire began to slowly break apart.

Good things came out of 1912 too; Tarzan made his first appearance to the public and the Olympic games took place in Sweden. Our extensive collection of 1912 newspaper articles offers fascinating insights into life during this memorable year in history.

    Thank you for your review.

    We do apologise for this.

    As you have ordered a newspaper only, the newspapers are sent out in a padded envelope and due to the size of the newspapers, they do have to be slightly folded. This should not damage the newspaper in anyway.

    As a gesture, we have applied a 10% discount to your order, which has been refunded to you. We hope will help towards rectify your dissatisfaction.

    Please do accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused. If you require any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us on 03300669700 or email us at info@historic-newspapers.co.uk

    Kind Regards,
