Historical Note

The Echo was founded in 1868 in London by English publishing house Cassell, Petter, & Galpin. It was the first halfpenny newspaper and published daily except on Sunday. The Saturday editions of the newspaper were usually titled The Cricket Echo or The Football Echo. Arthur Arnold, the first editor, sold the newspaper to Albert Grant in 1875. Grant served as the editor for less than twelve months, eventually selling the paper to John Passmore Edwards in 1876. After twenty years as editor, Edwards sold the newspaper to a syndicate created for the purpose of purchasing The Echo. After Edwards's departure, the newspaper struggled financially and eventually ceased production in August of 1905.
