Literary/ Cultural Context Note

The Mancheser Guardian first appeared as weekly in 1821, becoming a daily in 1855 after the stamp duty on newspapers was lifted. Coming from Manchester it was notably liberal and non-conformist in its stance, the voice of radical progress and political and moral reform, in contrast to the conservative posture of the London Times and Daily Telegraph. The word “Manchester” was dropped from the name in 1959.
