Exactly what I hoped for when I purchased this for my wife. The print is small so I recommend a magnifying glass. That is not their fault. The book is large but you are talking about an entire frontpage printed on a smaller scale. The headlines and subheadlines are easily readable. But, if you want to delve into the "stories" you may need to squint :)

Kat Thompson Trustpilot product review 3 star rating June 2 2021

For the price of this, I expected more. The product description appears to show the book is professionally done and gift worthy. Upon receipt, the product looks and feels like a typical high school yearbook. The pages feel and look like copy paper. The print is so small you need to use a magnifier to read it. I was excited to get this for a loved one. I am embarrassed to give it to them because it does not seem like much. I should have gone with the competitor.

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear that you were unhappy with the item received. We do advise that the product is a re-print and not the original newspaper from that day therefore this is a scanned copy using an ink based product press onto a high grade printing paper.

    The scans have been archived from original microfilms which are in black and white, some of which are quite dated and can vary in quality and size, we are also very dependent on the scans available for each date which can be quite grainy/pixelated. It is only in recent years that full colour digital archives have been made available so the print technology from your selected year may not be as good as a print from today.

    As a gesture we have processed a discount to your order and hope that this will in some way go towards any inconvenience caused, if you require any further assistance please contact us.

    Kindest regards
    Historic Newspapers.

Patrick Whalin Trustpilot product review 3 star rating May 17 2021

The print is so very tiny that even I, with 20-20 vision, could not read much of the text. My 92-year-old father, for whom I purchased this book as a gift, tried to read the print using magnifiers and a magnifying glass but simply could not. Frustrated with the effort after 30 minutes he put the book down and never opened it again.nnThere really should be a "large print" edition for the visually impaired. I suspect most of the elderly have some loss of vision issues so a "large print" edition should be a no-brainer.

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear of your disappointment. We have provided a scan copy of the original newspaper from that day and unfortunately we cannot edit the font in any way. Newspapers of that time had a smaller font and due to licensing, we cannot edit the format.

    As a gesture we will refund your shipping cost and hope that this will go towards any inconvenience caused. If you need any further assistance, please contact us at [email protected]

This was a perfect gift.

Nancy Vance Trustpilot product review 4 star rating May 16 2021

The book was beautifully bound, with personalized name and birth date on the outside, with our best wishes on the first page. My father's 95 years provided a long historical record, which he will very much enjoy. My only suggestion is that the news print was rather small - to fit it onto one side of each page (leaving a blank back side of each page for my father to write in his own memories.) I think it would be better, if possible, to have newsprint on front and back, with a few sheets at the back of the book to write personal memories. This would allow for possibly larger print.
