The Sunday Times, 6 January 1895

The Sunday Times was a newspaper published in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia from 1885 to 1930.

History[edit]

The Sunday Times was founded by W. H. Leighton Bailey.[1] It was first published on 15 November 1885 by Charles Mark Curtiss, and ceased with no. 2389 on 1 June 1930.[2]

The Sunday Times was controlled by the Evans family for over 30 years,[3] until 1916 when the Sunday Times Newspaper Company, as well as the company's premises, were sold to Hugh D. McIntosh.[4] In 1927, McIntosh sold his holdings in the Sunday Times Newspaper Company to Beckett's Newspapers, with J. H. C. Sleeman as Managing Director.[5] The Sunday Times ceased publication in 1930, with staff informed on 8 June.[6]

The Sunday Times Newspaper Company also published The Referee from 1887,[7] and later the Arrow.[8]
