First edition of The Orkney Today
The picture on this first front cover of the paper is hard to make out but that is a good thing. It is a photo of Ken Amer holding a copy of the paper which shows a picture of Ken Amer holding a copy of the paper, which shows a picture of Ken Amer holding a copy of the paper, which shows a picture of Ken Amer holding a copy of the paper...
Printing this terrifying vortex on the front of their first edition was a brave move and was not repeated again as several Orcadians were driven mad by it and there was some suing.The newspaper reported on many library events and we thank the staff for all of their support over the years.
This closure shall be hard for some and if any readers feel like reminiscing over old editions whilst weeping softly, we have all of the back issues on microfilm in the archive searchroom.
The launch of the paper.
