1916 News Headlines

What happened in this year for a 1916 newspaper to capture the public’s attention? 1916 was a tragic year in Europe. It saw the beginning of two of the most devastating battles in history, the Battle of Verdun and the Battle of the Somme, which led to over 2 million casualties combined. Germany bombed Paris with their Zeppelins. Irish republicans rose against British occupation in Dublin, in what would become known as the “Easter Rising”.

The largest naval battle of World War I would take place during the Battle of Jutland, leading to the deaths of over 8000 people. In the US, American oil tycoon John D. Rockefeller became the world’s first billionaire and the world’s first supermarket was opened in Memphis. 1916 was a fascinating year in history, which you can discover through our 1916 news archives.

Bought the Scotsman for my Dad’s 60th. He was over the moon. Came carefully wrapped and in a nice box. Paper was pristine. Will definitely use this site again. I thought initially it was a wee bit pricey but you are getting a paper from 60 years ago in perfect original condition.
