Daily Mail of 100 years ago

The Daily Mail of Monday 29th June 1914 featured – among other news – reports that Jack Johnson had retained the World Heavyweight Boxing Championship and that a Royal Navy officer was to attempt to make the first transatlantic crossing in an aircraft.

It also carried a letter from a Mr H Cole of Bickley about ‘The Puzzle of the Racing Pigeon’ which has barely dated in the century that has passed since its publication.
