Vol. IV: Personal stories
Personal stories from Fleet Street
This new section of our website is for the personal stories of those who worked in Fleet Street during the 'hot metal' era before computerised typesetting took over. The newspapers then moved away from their traditional homes in and around Fleet Street and into buildings elsewhere which were more suitable for the new technology
We hope that these stories will give you a flavour of what Fleet Street was actually like, with its very crowded pavements, its roads jammed with traffic including large lorries loaded with very large rolls of newsprint, and small vans painted with newspaper slogans dashing off to railway stations with copies of newspapers for national distribution.
