I'm just sorting through some of my stuff and I found this interesting item. I don't know if I've already put it on the forum, so apologies if I have.

It's a single-sheet newspaper issued in Birkenhead during the General Strike in 1926, published by Willmers. Presumably the Birkenhead News staff were on strike and this was printed by the proprietors.

You should be able to read the individual stories by zooming in.

The text isn't very legible when you zoom in, so here are some front-page stories.

Not so easy to read ,Yoller but it has made me read up a bit about the General Strike , of which I knew nothing. Interesting daily bulletin. Thanks
