Historical information

The Weekly Times was first published on September 11, 1869, by a group of Melbourne businessmen who owned the now-defunct Daily Telegraph, with the stated aim to be a “journal of literature, sport, agriculture, science and politics”.
A series of special editions and special prints were produced for the 125th anniversary.


These photographs are a useful reference tool.
