The Weekly Times 19-May-1934 Cover


The Weekly Times was, and is, a newspaper aimed at a rural readership. It was first published in 1869 and has long been recognised by its distinctive orange cover. The Weekly Times is published today by News Corporation. The Newspaper website is http://www.weeklytimesnow.com.au

The State Library of Victoria holds the 1934 Weekly Times on Microfilm, and a thank you to the library for my access to the original newspapers so that I could take the photos for this site.

The 1934 Weekly Times contained five colourised VFL photos and one Cricket Photo. These were full page images. A number of Country tean photos also appeared in the paper, the black and white team photos were slightly less than half page in size.

The original newspapers are bound into large volumes. The images here are taken with a digital camera and are not flat scanned.
