The street of ink - PDF by H. Simoni

The street of ink, an intimate history of journalism

The street of ink


For three generations my family have lived in the Street of Ink for the best part of their lives, and, therefore, its story is to be of absorbing interest. Our office is full of the memories of great journalists, who came and went day by day, mostly for many years, as they had come and gone through the old building it replaced.

 It was a sound instinct to have put Delane among the makers of Victorian England, and none can understand the political and social life of the Empire today — the History of the Present — without they know something of the journals and the journalists who proclaim its ideals, echoes its thoughts and stimulate its activities. Your book will, 

I think, be important and useful to those who wish to read aright the meaning of this tremendous epoch.
