NEWS OF THE WORLD ARCHIVE FOR 1912

I searched the on-line indexes for the National Archives, Kew and found the reference number for the minutes of a 1912 court case in which I am interested and which is now open, had them copied via an on-line request and sent to me for a modest sum. A really quite easy process!

I then used information from the case minutes to search the new on-line Times archives, which is easy and free, and have found the relevant newspaper in December 1912 reporting the case. I was able to copy/paste and print the report of the case in the Times. Again no charge. I now want to look at the News of the World for the following Sunday in December 1912. Their on-line archive, unlike that for the Times, only goes back about 10 years so I am back to the old fashioned methods! I had it in mind they might be in the newspaper archive near Edgware but then remembered that itonly holds local newspapers. Does anyone know where I can look at 1912/1913 copies of the News of the World and where hopefully they allow photos or copying of articles?

NEWS OF THE WORLD ARCHIVE FOR 1912
Authored by: Tony Bunting on 12:40PM BST - Tuesday, 23 September 2008

I have found the answer.  I have to go to The British Library Newspaper Department at Colindale Avenue, London NW9 5HE (which is near Edgeware) where there are copies of all newspapers on fiche. They are open monday to Saturday 10am to 5pm. Readers have to have a readers pass or take 2 forms of identity such as a utility bill and credit card as one must have an address and one a signature. You can either book the relevant fiche in advance by ringing 020 7412 7000 or just turn up and wait about 45 minutes for someone to get the fiche.
