Telegraph Showcases Redesign For 160th Birthday

The Daily Telegraph has reinstated its traditional gothic style masthead to mark its 160th birthday.

The Daily Telegraph was published for the first time on 29th June 1855, under the name 'The Daily Telegraph and Courier".

Last week, for its 160th birthday, the newspaper revealed its traditional gothic masthead has made a comeback.

The same issue included a four page pull out dedicated to the history of The Telegraph.

The first issue of The Daily Telegraph, from 1855, cost just two pence.

In 1874, it claimed to have the biggest circulation in the world.

The first daily crossword was introduced by The Telegraph in 1925, with the first television supplement appearing in 1935.

In addition to this, The Telegraph also published the first daily national newspaper sports supplement, which was introduced in 1990.

In 1994, The Electronic Telegraph became the first national newspaper website.

Recent ABC figures revealed that The Telegraph is currently the fourth most popular national newspaper website, with an average unique daily user count of 4.9M.

In addition to the return of the traditional gothic masthead, The Telegraph is increasing the size of the main font in the newspaper. This will mean that there will be around 5% fewer words in every paper.
