This week, instead of picking one subject, I have chosen various articles from one paper. War news was a very large part of the papers at that time, as shown by 3 articles from the front page. Also interesting to note is that the Christmas light up downtown lasted from December 18 until Christmas Eve – one week only.
The items from page 6 are fillers, but they illustrate some of the difficulties being experienced in Britain. We are more familiar with the larger issues faced by the people there, but these items show the extent to which everyday life was affected.
