A Day of Research at The British Library Newspaper Articles

September 14, 2013


Today we have spent the day looking through newspapers from 1921 to 1930

The building is amazing and looking through old newspapers is a very interesting way to spend your day

The best part of the day is that we found the advert for the launch of my Great Grandfathers shop, the announcement of my Gran’s birth and some fantastic adverts

I have added the picture of a Sainsburys advert as an example – strange to think that Sainsburys was only a few years old in 1923. They advertised extensively and you can see why they became one of the UK’s biggest retailers

We will return very soon to research the launch if the nursery as my Great Grandfathers second business and it’s demise in 1941 when it was bombed in the war

Some interesting times ahead 🙂
