Historical city paper digitalized

The earliest English-language newspaper in the city, North-China Daily News, has been digitalized and can be viewed on the computers at the Shanghai Library and The Bibliotheca Zi-Ka-Wei.

Also known as Tzu Lin His Pao, the paper was one of the earliest modern newspapers in China. It was founded by British auctioneer Henry Shearman in 1850 and folded in 1951. Featuring shipping and commercial news, North-China Daily News carried reports and opinion pieces on current affairs. Among its famous contributors were Frederic H. Balfour (1871-1908), a preeminent Sinologist who translated and wrote about Taoist texts.
