In the early days of the Daily News, it was common for readers to record their own copies in a diary or letter book, and then mail them to family members or friends, or to store them in an album. The newspaper’s earliest front pages, dating back to 1855, are now available online through the Daily News Historical Archive.

Each Daily News article includes comprehension and critical thinking questions that help students build their understanding of the news story.
