Cub Reporter: The Accrington Observer By Irvine Hunt
Paperback: $11.63
Ships in 3-5 business days
A huddle of journalists was busily hammering at their typewriters the morning Irvine Hunt joined the Accrington Observer as a cub reporter in the heart of industrial Lancashire. A crumpled wire... More > waste paper basket awaited on one side of his desk and a potted lanky geranium on the other. Two exciting years followed. Its half-a-dozen reporters covered everything from gruesome inquests to numbing blizzards, from Ladies' Bright Hours to a store ablaze in the heart of the little Lancashire town. And there were the happy surprises. The contacts, the musician friends, two of whom became world famous. And the 30-shilling-a-week girl reporter who applied for an Observer job when still in her gymslip, who couldn't spell, but who went on to become a successful publisher. Cub Reporter embraces a much-liked family newspaper, in which every name in print was expected to sell a copy, an era familiar to every reporter who ever compiled funeral lists of floral tributes in the days of hot type.< Less

Murder, Madness and Mayhem By Jean Gavin
Paperback: $15.19
Ships in 3-5 business days
We have an idealised view of life in Victorian times, seeing it as idyllic and we mistakenly believe that present day society is more violent. This, in fact, is not true but, because of TV coverage... More > we are aware of terrible events in this country and others. When you look back you see that crimes were more violent and “gory”, the macabre interest of neighbours who paid to see the victims is incredible. The punishments meted out in courts were similar to that today, namely, more severe for crimes against possessions than for those against people. One crime I followed as far as possible and, with the help of the Black Museum of Manchester, was able to show was that Sarah Manion was on the roles of the prison. What happened to her there and what became of her on release, I could not trace. The “Good old days”, they were certainly not.< Less
