You hadn't opened your eyes for the first time, yet political debates will have been taking place in parliament, the biggest pop star may have been playing to a sold our arena that night, and major scientific breakthroughs were being made. Ever wondered exactly which of these facts were actually true? Well, let us help...
This hand-crafted hardback book features the Daily Mirror's front page from the day of your birth to the present day! Whether it's royal pregnancies, tragic accidents or fashion faux-pas, this intriguing book will give you an insight into what stories were deemed as most important at the time and how they’ve changed as time goes on.
