NewspaperARCHIVE.com, the world's largest online newspaper archive, has launched a major upgrade to their website, introducing "The Daily Perspective" blog linking today's headlines to news from the past, all through historical newspaper pages. Each day's story contains links to full-size newspaper page PDF images, which allows further reading and research. Stories cover all topics, including the history of major holidays, current economic problems, the conflict between Israel and Gaza, Oscar award news, scientific discoveries and more.
The new blog, available free without a subscription to NewspaperARCHIVE.com, incorporates bold newspaper images and penetrating historical analysis. "I'm very excited to move 'The Daily Perspective' into a blog format," said Stephen Carr, Writer for NewspaperARCHIVE.com.
