Can anyone help me with this? I am putting together a photo album and on one of the pages i would like either:

the front page of a newspaper from 26 Jan 1940

or

the headlines from the year of 1940

(obviously not just a list of words on a white background, but something in a 'news' theme)

I know you can buy the papers from any year, but i am hoping to grab a screenshot of the same information from a website.

Make sense? Can anyone help?

Ta!

On the right "By date" - put in the date and you can get the whole paper.

You probably want something now - but in the event you dont, try your local library and get the newspaper reels from that year and month. Then go to the correct date and print it out (cost me 20p) and it only took about 5 mins to find what i was a after (headline for history assignment).
