Illustrated London News.

The Illustrated London News was the world's first illustrated weekly news magazine; its inaugural issue appeared on Saturday, 14 May 1842. The magazine was published weekly until 1971, and less frequently thereafter. Publication ceased in 2003.

Each copy is packed with many hundreds of news items, engravings, advertisements and editorial comments and below I have picked out the majority of illustrations, each of which is linked to an article. I have also added a few choice morsels from the wide range of other topics covered.
