The Illustrated London News is probably the most
interesting of the "magazine" newspapers published.

collection of news and informative articles, and lots of excellent
illustrations ranging from those depicting overseas events in all
parts of the world, and those in England. Churches, people,
wonderful early views of towns and villages, etc. It provides an
excellent source of reference material for historians and
genealogists and can be viewed easily using Adobe Acrobat
