1967 Newspapers

The swinging sixties was one of the most exciting decades in history, filled with music, protest, and questionable fashion trends. As the decade neared its end, the world looked a much brighter place than it had in the wake of World War II. People were filled with hope, and idealized the concept of freedom and liberty in all aspects of life.

Our collection of historic newspapers is the largest in the world, and you can surely find a 1967 newspaper which chronicles any event of interest. An authentic newspaper is a wonderful gift idea for birthdays, anniversaries, or other special occasion.

Lovely old paper to read

Lavinia Bradley Trustpilot product review 3 star rating December 1 2020

Very disappointed. Only 3 pages and was very disappointed as it was to be a special gift but I have now had to go and find something else. It did arrive in a lovely box but as the box was virtually empty even that looked a bit ridiculous. If you had made contact with me and perhaps suggested an additional paper , I would have very happily paid for an additional copy of another paper.

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear this.

    We will always provide you with your requested newspaper as it was printed on your selected date. As you have ordered a 1940’s date, during the Second World War, all newspapers were affected by the national rationing and therefore every newspaper only consisted of a few papers. The newspaper rationing continued until the early 1950’s. When you received your newspaper you should have received a card within the gift box to stating this information.

    Please accept our apologies for any inconvenienced caused.
