A6: Old Newspapers

Looking for information in an old newspaper.  

Most areas have newspapers that have been published for a long time. You can probably find copies of some of them in the local library.

What do you make of this story that appeared in the Birmingham Daily Post, January 2nd 1880?



How many stories like this might you find in the newspapers today? Have things changed all that much? Theft, gun crime, drinking, absconding [running away,]......... all part of everyday life! What can you find out about life in your area in your local paper?
