The Herald’s winning formula? A sensationalist tone, reliance on illustrations, and coverage of fashion, arts, and culture.
Yep, all the lifestyle fluff newspapers today need to attract readers.
Perhaps these sweet, apparently hand-drawn posters advertising the coming Sunday edition had something to do with it though.
Cartoons, new fiction, and illustrations of Central Park plus new routes concerning the cycling craze: good reading on a May Sunday in the mid-1890s.
