The British Worker - general strike newspaper, 1926

Online archive of The British Worker, the daily newspaper published by the Trades Union Congress (TUC) during the 10 day general strike of 1926.

Submitted by libcom on January 20, 2011

The paper ran for 11 issues between 5 May and 17 May 1926.

Most of the issues were photocopied and reduced to A4 size then scanned as PDFs by libcom.org, except for two which were photographed by one of our users. Regretfully one page of one of the issues is partly obscured. If any users have access to the missing page please comment here or send us an e-mail so we can complete the archive.

Awesome. If you could turn them into a PDF that would be great. 11 is also missing.

Hmm it's having trouble doing the upload, keeps saying:

An HTTP error 0 occurred. /upload/js

The photos didn't come out great either, so I'll have another go tomorrow. Unfortunately the book I got number 5 from only goes up to 8!
