Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine William Blackwood Edinburgh 1817 to 1980

"Blackwood's was conceived as a rival to the Whig-supporting Edinburgh Review. Compared to the rather staid tone of The Quarterly Review, the other main Tory work, Maga was ferocious and combative. This is due primarily to the work of its principal writer John Wilson, who wrote under the pseudonym of Christopher North. Never trusted with the editorship, he nevertheless wrote much of the magazine along with the other major contributors John Gibson Lockhart and William Maginn.

The Northern Star Yorkshire 1837 to 1852

"The Northern Star was by far the most successful of the Chartist newspapers. Established by Feargus O’Connor, it was first published on 22 November 1837 at the price of four and a half pence. It was a stamped newspaper, which meant that it was priced beyond the means of a lot of working-class people, but despite this it sold in the thousands, peaking in 1839 at 48,000 copies a week, and became a key organ of the Chartist movement. O’Connor had neither the skills nor the desire to run the paper himself, so he appointed William Hill as editor and Bronterre O’Brien as lead writer.
