Fake News 21st July 1924

Fake News is a new project, by Tim Knight, which uses Local and Family History’s newspaper archive to publish a fictional front page every month. Curated from cuttings of The Yorkshire Post and The Yorkshire Evening Post—Leeds’ oldest continuous newspaper—Fake News will explore the goings-on, mishaps and miscellany of Yorkshire through the ages.

Today’s edition, hot off the press: 21st July 1924. Can’t sleep? A little muggy? Keep cool this summer with a spray of cologne No. 4711. Netflix boring? Watched everything on iPlayer twice? Head down to the Majestic and catch Buster Keaton classic The Haunted House. Today’s weather: perhaps thunder.
