The Illustrated London News has been added to the Gale Newspaper Archives. These online archives are available through public libraries and educational institutions.

Here is a quote explain the addition by a Gale publisher…..“The Illustrated London News Historical Archive 1842-2003 will help students, enthusiasts and those interested in genealogy to research social history, fashion, theatre, media, literature, advertising, graphic design and politics," says Seth Cayley, publisher at Gale Cengage Learning EMEA. "As an eyewitness to the past, it offers pictorial insight into events across the world."
