Link - Before Newspapers
« on: Sunday 25 July 04 23:33 BST (UK) »
Just found this site http://www.nls.uk/broadsides/index.html

Broadsides were a way of giving out the news before newspapers - digital library, searchable, covering 1,800 Broadsides, 1650-1910.
Had a quick browse and looks really interesting.
