The People's Journal, first published in 1858, was a Scottish periodical, originally produced by John Leng & Co., a local publishing company that for a time enjoyed the Scottish artist, political cartoonist, postcard illustrator and publisher Martin Anderson (better known by his pseudonym Cynicus) as a member of its staff. Another contributor was Camilla Dufour Crosland.[1] Latterly, The People's Journal was produced by the regional publisher D.C. Thomson & Co.[2] The last ever edition was published on Saturday 11 January 1986.[3]
