The Illustrated Press
At the turn of the 20th century, the press underwent profound changes. Vehicles for the debate of ideas in the 19th century, newspapers focussed on information, particularly on national and foreign news, special events and sports in the 20th century. Thanks to technical advances in reproduction processes, it became possible to illustrate newspaper articles with drawings and photographs. After the 1920s, photographs assumed increasing importance in the new, daily information sources called newspapers.
