New website brings old Manx newspapers to life

Historical broadsheets document Island's past

Newspapers and publications from the Isle of Man's past have been brought to life and made readily available at the click of a mouse. 

Manx National Heritage has re-launched a new-improved iMuseum website, dedicated to viewing historical broadsheets, stretching from 1792 to 1960.

Subscribers can now search for individual stories, store their own 'collection' of chosen articles, and share their finds on social media.

The website now has an analytics feature for more serious researchers to sift through information, and works on mobile and tablet.   

Edmund Southworth, Director of Manx National Heritage, says the updated technology makes the whole experience easier and more enjoyable.

For last century's Sunday paper and other historical publications head to www.imuseum.im/newspapers/.
