The Darkest England Gazette

The Darkest England Gazette was a weekly publication issued by The Salvation Army between July 1893 and June 1894. Its purpose was to report on The Salvation Army's recently centralised social work, the 'Darkest England Scheme', in a way that appealed to a broad audience. For one penny, readers got twelve pages filled with reportage, plentiful illustrations, poetry, and fiction. 

On this page, you will find digital copies of articles from the Darkest England Gazette that you can read and download, as well as Research Guides that offer a brief introduction to prominent themes from the Gazette.
