papers created covering the years 1824/5, 1850-
Last but not least we also have the Journal’s negative archive. Thousands of glass and film negatives which were taken for use (or not) in the newspaper from the late 1940s to the early 2000s. So far we have digitised nearly 28,000 of these negatives and there are thousands more to do.
