Front pages about Titanic and the Queen’s coronation all feature in an interactive gallery.
As the Daily Mail celebrates its 125th anniversary, the newspaper has delved into the archives to present a virtual gallery of pictures, front pages, campaigns and the very first edition, published 4th May 1896.
From the announcement of the Titanic’s sinking – in which the Daily Mail was the only newspaper to publish the names of all lost lives, no matter their social class – to the Queen’s coronation and the paper’s Banish the Bags campaign that led to the 5p plastic carrier bag levy, the gallery is an in-depth, visual exploration of the key events that Daily Mail has inimitably captured, or created.
Commenting on the gallery, editor of the Daily Mail Geordie Greig said: “This historic 125th anniversary of the Daily Mail is a significant milestone in British Journalism. Since 1896 the paper has shown its exceptional reporting, campaigning, and picture power – always bringing news in an entertaining and authoritative way. This virtual gallery is a celebration of our newspaper’s legacy – showing our coverage of the most significant events in our nation’s history.”
