Newspaper history:
Annabel Colley's column in the FreePint newsletter points to this fascinating destination for news fanatics: Guardian Newsroom. This is an archive and visitor center devoted to history of London's Guardian (once the Manchester Guardian) and Observer (Sunday) newspapers. Includes links to info on one-time Guardian writer George Orwell, and a timeline, Interactive or text version. This sounds like a really fun place to visit physically, even more than online. There's even a cafe on site. (Wow! another excuse to travel to London!)
Besides the Newsroom, there's also a site, Guardian Century, celebrating 100 years (Guardian was founded in 1899). This site provides partial text of stories covering major or interesting events of the century.
