The Daily Telegraph and Courier was first published in 1855, on a Friday late in June, just as the penny tax on newspapers was repealed. Our name embodied the very latest in electric communications, which enabled the speed of our reporting, and its distribution. Just 71 days later ‘and Courier’ was dropped from the masthead in preference for simply The Daily Telegraph, which is still the title of our daily paper.
