Guardian Weekly celebrates 90 years in print

The Guardian Weekly celebrates its 90th birthday tomorrow, with an eight-page supplement featuring highlights from the past nine decades.

The paper launched on 4 July 1919 to coincide with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles. Its aim was to  create a greater international understanding.

Guardian Weekly editor Natalie Bennett said: “For 90 years Guardian Weekly has been providing readers from around the globe with the cream of Guardian coverage focusing on politics, news and culture.

“Our supplement presents a wonderful retrospective from across the weekly’s history including news stories on the end of the war, the Middle East, the American elections and a selection of reader’s letters.”
