The first newspaper to be written for the average man on the street, the Daily Mail was inexpensive and comprehensive. As a counterpart to the establishment’s Times of London, the Daily Mail provides a window in the world of contemporary controversies and a unique perspective on the development of journalism in the 20th century.
