The Times newspaper online archive

The Times newspaper has launched a free online archive of 20 million articles from the paper covering 200 years – 1785 to 1985.

Included are letters to the editor, photographs and advertisements with each page presented on a parchment scoloured screen and just as it would have appeared in the original newspaper.  Full access needs registration, but is really worth it.  The archive is free at the moment, with no decision having been made yet about charging.  This is a real treasure of a website!
