100 Years of the British Newspaper

The British Library has a nifty exhibition right now: Front Page: Celebrating 100 Years of the British Newspaper 1906—2006. The online component of the exhibition allows us to read 29 of the most memorable front pages from the last 100 years (ranging from “Titanic: No Lives Lost” to “9/11: The News That Everyone Already Knew”). There’s also a digitised archive of the Penny Illustrated Paper (which was published from 1861—1913).
