The most iconic front pages in a regional daily’s history are to be commemorated in a series of supplements.
The Dundee-based Evening Telegraph will run five ‘Front Pages of History’ supplements between today and Friday, documenting its coverage of some of the biggest news events in history.
Today’s initial supplement, pictured below, features the two world wars, the sinking of the Titanic, the assassination of JFK and the Queen’s coronation, as well as a look back at the first Evening Telegraph ever published.
Tomorrow’s will focus on notorious crimes which took place on the Evening Telegraph’s patch, while the third supplement will look at the changing face of Dundee.
Thursday’s issue is featured around ‘Dundee Life’, and includes the city’s reaction to last year’s referendum vote.
The final supplement will take a look at sport – featuring archive pages marking Dundee FC winning the league, Dundee United’s European exploits and local athletes’ glories on the world stage.
Evening Telegraph Editor Richard Prest said: “The Evening Telegraph is a Dundee institution and has brought readers all the latest news, from home and abroad, for 137 years.
“To see how our former colleagues covered some of the biggest stories in history is absolutely fascinating.”
