1889 newspaper found during renovations

1 post in this topic

Building work at Buckingham Palace has unearthed historical fragments including pieces of a newspaper published in 1889.

Torn scraps of the 27 November 1889 edition of the Evening Standard were discovered beneath floorboards in the Palace, as well as three empty cigarette packets.

While details of the Standard's stories are difficult to make out, the scraps appear to feature listings of the day's cultural events and, in one article, the observation that "boys will be boys".

The artefacts were discovered during rewiring work to remove old, and potentially dangerous, electrical cabling from Buckingham palace.
