I found a couple of old copies of the Shetland Times from 1942 and 1955 recently. Here is the front page of the 6th June 1942 edition. I have decided to use the "easyzoom" website to host these large images as it allows zooming and panning etc.


Further excerpts to follow when the new scanner arrives (the current one died a death after doing this page)!

The Shetland Times has told a lot of history. This one was told last in 2011.
