North China Daily News Online
The North China Daily News (in Chinese: Zilin Xibao), was an English-language newspaper in Shanghai, China, called the most influential foreign newspaper of its time. Spanning the period 1923-1941 this is the prime printed source in any language for the history of the foreign presence in China, and with that the history of Shanghai, a city at the forefront of developments in Chinese politics, culture and the economy, and thus the hub of all Euro-American activity.
Apart from news and gossip reflecting the social, cultural and political life of the foreign settlements, the North-China Daily also offered a wide spectrum of other information, including regional news, essays on Chinese culture and language, stock prices and law and company reports, as well as obituaries and tables of tea, silk and cotton exports.
With full colour 300 dpi scans and OCR these newspapers are much more easily accessible.
