    Default Newspaper Daily Sketch 1955 article lookup

    Hi all,
    I would like to ask if anyone has paid acced to the www.newspapers.com? My has expired last month and I do not want to re-new it right now just because one article.

    I will be very thankful if anybody would be willing to search for me

    Daily Sketch of 4 July 1955 page 8

    There should be a picture of Mrs. K. A. M. Hayek and her six-year-old daughter Olga. I am interested if there is any aticle about them or just a photo with caption?

    The newpspaper may be published in Stratford-upon-Avon.

    TIA

    Pavel

    So far I have been informed that Daily Sketch newspaper is not avaiable at www.newspapers.com.
    I have tried also https://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk but again no luck. Anyone can help where this newspaper is archived?

    Thank you Pete for your effort. It seems to me this newspaper is not in those common archives online.

    It seems to be available on microfilm from the British Library via their Boston Spa branch. When it all gets back to normality, and I make my next visit, I can order it, if you haven't found it by then.

    I can't see any mention of her around July 1955 in the newspapers archive on FindMyPast. Do you know what the article is about?
