Archant’s East London Advertiser celebrates 150th birthday

Posted on

The East London Advertiser marked its 150th birthday this week with a 40-page pullout looking back at the big news stories over the years.

Reporter Mike Brooke produced the supplement which includes Jack the Ripper, the Kray twins, the Blitz, the match girls’ strike and the George Davis is Innocent campaign.

In addition, the East London Advertiser produced a wrap with testimonies from TV presenter Richard Madeley, broadcaster Julia Hartley-Brewer, pop star Steve Harley and The Sun royal photographer Arthur Edwards - who all worked at the paper in the early stages of their careers.

The supplement was also complemented with an online quiz about the history of London’s East End.

“It is a fantastic issue of the East London Advertiser this week - the wrap and supplement look great and are testament to all of the hard work that has been put in by the East London Advertiser team” said Steve Mitchell, Archant's Publishing Director for East London, Essex & Kent.
