About

This blog features selected stories from the 1861 editions of Victorian weekly newspapers, such as Bell’s Life in London and Sporting Chronicle and Lloyd’s Weekly, posted to the web every week, exactly one hundred and fifty years after they were published.

If you like old stories about people you’ve never heard of, you might enjoy Small Town Noir, another blog I write, which reconstructs the stories behind old mug shots from the town of New Castle, Pennsylvania.
