Verlagsinformation :: Publisher's information

The Daily Mirror was first publisher in 1903 by Alfred Harmsworth (later Lord Northcliffe) as a newspaper for women, run by women. Then in 1904 the pioneering decision to publish photographs was taken. This innovative use of photography was immediately popular and the relaunched Mirror rapidly established itself with a circulation of more than 500,000.

Circulation continued to grow and by 1930 the Daily Mirror was selling over 1 million copies per day. The appeal of a left wing paper for the working men and women of Britain grew and with editorial stances such as campaigning against the appeasement of Hitler (The Daily Mirror was the only British popular newspaper to do so consistently) the circulation grew to 4.5 million copies per day.

Throughout the Second World War, The Daily Mirror was the paper of the "ordinary" soldier and civilian, critical of the incompetence of the old-fashioned establishment and even threatened with closure on one notable occasion. At the end of the war the paper campaigned vigorously for the Labour Party and those emotive calls for social justice and equality were met with the elections of a Labour Government armed with a powerful mandate for social and welfare reform.

Since then, the newspaper has continued its position as a popular tabloid newspaper that covers the events and storied that have shaped our modern world, in an open and accessible style. The Daily mirror remains the people's paper.
