A Victorian Scrapbook

A Scrapbook of Victorian Newspapers compiled by George Burgess (1829-1905)

Diary and scrapbook by George BurgessThe scrapbook of George Burgess covering most of his working life from the late 1840's to the 1900's contains Victorian era newspaper articles (most undated, but a few have been dated). The articles are mostly from American newspapers between 1845 and 1857 while George Burgess was in America and British newspapers from 1857 to about 1901. For historical accuracy poor spelling and bad grammar (and American spellings) in any article is faithfully reproduced in the transcription. Also see the 'Downend Parish Magazine, August 1905' for further serialised Story's by Victorian authors. Also see the scanned images of some of the original newspaper articles.
