ISLANDERS are loving the Isle of Wight County Press’s new online archive.
In the first week alone, more than 300 people signed up for the new searchable archive of all the County Press’s 130-year history.
The site, which is accessed through iwcp.co.uk, has more than 160,000 pages in 6,000 editions available in a searchable PDF format, dating back to the paper’s launch in 1884.
Although it is a paid-for service, you can sign up for free and access the regularly changed free page. This week that takes users back to the 1990s when terror struck the Island as an animal rights activist firebombed shops in Ryde and Newport.
