60’s newspapers

Newspapers of the 60’s examples: The daily mirror being a specifically famous newspaper.

The Krays in the headlines.

The newspaper was one of the biggest implements of the news media as radios weren’t largely owned and the newspaper was available for everybody. Fonts of the main headline are bold to attract the attention of people as it can be easily read from a distance.

Comic strips of the 60s didn’t really contain any of the gangsters, probably because the publishers didn’t want to upset dangerous people such as these. These are some examples of 60s comic strips. I suspect the peanuts and blondie was popular at the time. Britain\London was more famous for comic strips like Beano.
