News gathering has changed beyond recognition over the years, with new technologies and social media having impacted upon every aspect of the industry.
Today we take a look back at the days when the Gazette was compiled by reporters using typewriters and produced in a process using compositing machines, hot metal and something called a flong.
For many years, the production of newspapers continued more or less unchanged until the 1980s when the evolution of modern printing methods revolutionised the way the word was transferred to paper.
Here we see Gazette staff, including members of the editorial and production team, at work and play throughout the years.
How many of those pictured do you recognise? Please get in touch.
