Fake News 21st August 1934

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, a fortnight late off the press: 21st August 1934. Finally, experimental traffic crossing have been installed at the junction of Briggate and Headrow!
