We are planning to produce at least 75 information panels, typically of 700 words or so with two pictures on each panel.  Each panel will be linked with a QR code to a parallel sister page on the www.fleetstreetheritage,com website. 

 

The information panels will be in 3 broad groups. The draft list of subjects is shown below. Panels finished or under active development are starred *. 

We are asking current newspapers to produce their own text together with a scan of their original masthead and a small section from the first page of the first issue.

The information panels will be made available to local organisations who wish to stage exhibitions.  We hope that we will also be able to find local sites for displaying these panels on a long-term basis, and have made some progress with this. 

 

We are now hoping to find some people who would be willing to write some of these articles.  Authors would be given an honorarium, and the author’s name would appear on the finished article.  If you, or anyone you know, might be interested in working with us on this project, please send an email to piersnic@gmail.com
