Place Name

The Daily Chronicle was a newspaper published between 1872 to 1930 when it merged with the Daily News (founded in 1846 by Charles Dickens) to become the News Chronicle – the new paper continued for a further 30 years, with its last edition on October 17, 1960, after which it was absorbed into the Daily Mail.
