Everything old is news again
 
 

Each of the fifteen chapters has a general introduction to the topic, and each article lists the date and newspaper source, with occasional explanatory notes. Many of these articles could be printed in today’s newspaper and most readers would not be aware that they were reading reports over a hundred years old. Entertaining and informative. With almost one hundred illustrations from the period.
