Greetings members and visitors of MangelsDesigns!
My name is Thomas Walker and it has been my pleasure to make these front pages available to MangelsDesigns so that they can be used and enjoyed by you. Past newspapers, like scrapbooks, offer a fascinating window into days gone by and are unrivaled in the authenticity and clarity of the information they are communicating. After all, they do say a picture speaks a 1,000 words!
I have specifically selected headlines from milestone events in the last 100 years as hopefully many of these will be remembered, if not first hand, as occasions that were taught in school or recounted by family members.
The newspapers that I have selected typically only date back to just over 100 years. The reason for this is that before this time the front pages consisted of very little news coverage and contained no images, they were instead filled with classified advertisements, public notices and even obituaries.
I am so pleased that there is the opportunity for these front pages to be valued again in this digital age and hope that you will enjoy them as much as I have over the years, and for many years to come. What better way to preserve and present your personal history than within a setting of such major historical events taken from the time!
