1967 Newspapers

The swinging sixties was one of the most exciting decades in history, filled with music, protest, and questionable fashion trends. As the decade neared its end, the world looked a much brighter place than it had in the wake of World War II. People were filled with hope, and idealised the concept of freedom and liberty in all aspects of life.

Our collection of historic newspapers is the largest in the world, and you can surely find a 1967 newspaper which chronicles any event of interest. An authentic newspaper is a wonderful gift idea for birthdays, anniversaries, or other special occasion.

1967 Headlines Summary

Some of the most memorable 1967 newspaper headlines include the nationalisation of the British steel industry, the release of Charlie Chaplin’s last film, and the launch of many of BBC radio’s programs. The Beatles released “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band“, an album that is still a classic today. A 1967 newspaper provides a fascinating insight into what it would have been like to be there at the time, reading these very headlines without knowing about them in hindsight.

Miss Shona Henderson Trustpilot product review 5 star rating June 8 2021

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.
