Chronicling L.A.'s Historic Newspapers: The Los Angeles Herald, Circa 1904
The Library of Congress and the National Endowment for the Humanities have been slowly posting images from 19th century and early 20th century defuct newspapers.
The site, Chronicling America, includes images of newspaper pages from 1880-1922 and information about American newspapers published between 1690 to the present day.
Included in the collection are numerous California papers, including the Los Angeles Herald -- which eventually through mergers became the Los Angeles Evening Herald and Express... which by 1962 merged with the Los Angeles Examiner to become the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner (R.I.P. 1989).
As the Los Angeles Herald, this paper existed from 1900 to 1911.
