Birmingham newspapers on BNA

Birmingham, England's somewhat unloved second city, is slowly becoming better represented in The British Newspaper Archive.
Weekly newspaper coverage available is the Birmingham Gazette from 1824 to 1867, and for 1871 and 1876, and the Birmingham Journal with coverage from 1859 to 1868.
Daily coverage is provided by the Birmingham Daily Post from 1858 to 1895.
The  Birmingham Daily Gazette has started to be added in the past 30 days. Only issues for 1877 and 1889 are presently available although the range advertised, 1877 - 1889, suggests more will be coming soon.
According to a news report the company is looking to eventually bring the collection for Birmingham up to the 1950s.
These newspapers are also available to subscribers to findmypast.co.uk and findmypast.com.
