It is without doubt the case that the on-line archive of old newspapers provided by the British Library has been of immense use and value to me. Without it I would have struggled to write "The Norwood Author" and it is proving equally as useful for my, as yet untitled, book on Undershaw.
However I am suffering from a severe case of goggle-eyes after spending two afternoons browsing through all manner of papers for the years 1898 and 1899. I have to repeat this excercise for every year up to and including 1907.
Why do I do it to myself?
