Inside the 100th anniversary edition of the Guardian Weekly
July 3, 2019 by erfa5t8
Concern one of the Manchester Guardian Weekly was published in the week that the Treaty of Versailles was signed, as a world rocked by conflict looked at how to develop a better future. We are a long method from the hell of the world wars, but as we attempt to deal with modern-day crises, such as the climate emergency, our role remains the very same: to keep Guardian readers worldwide informed.
Today, in our centre pages you will discover a 32-page supplement commemorating the function of the Weekly over the past century, with reports from essential minutes in history, archive photography, memories from readers and journalists, and traditional front pages. We hope you enjoy it, however long you’ve been a reader.
