1914 News Headlines

There was plenty of 1914 news to fill the pages of all the national papers. With a World War dominating the second half of the year, 1914 was a dark time in history, characterised by bloodshed, poverty and death.

Heir to the Austrian throne, Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife were assassinated by a Serbian nationalist in Sarajevo, an event which sparked outrage throughout Europe, causing the Austro-Hungarian government to react. Then, in July, Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia, and so commenced one of the bloodiest and most shocking wars in history. As WWI wreaked havoc on Europe, the grisly business of war dominated 1914 newspaper articles, however life carried on in the meantime. Our collection of 1914 newspaper articles detail Charlie Chaplin’s escapades in the silent film industry, industrialist Henry Ford’s announcement to double workers pay, and the first commercial air-flight taking place in Florida.
