Have you noticed the Classic Thread for the Illustrated London News,where a check is made on that publication through the many Officer photos for members ?

If you know where he went to school or university there are a lot of school rolls with photos

Coming soon -


"To request pricing or a free trial contact emea.marketing@cengage.com"

I did so and got this reply -

Dear John,

The archive will be released later this year. It is only available at this stage to institutions for trial and purchase eg. academic or public libraries. You may wish to register your interest with your nearest large public library. They could then make some enquiries on your behalf. They can direct their queries to emea.arketing@cengage.com



Might be worth checking with your local library.

That looks like a great resource and we should all be knocking at our librarians' door to get them to provide it via their ticket system, as with the Times, and other papers.

Thanks for the info.
