Herbert Ingram and Mark Lemon of Punch published the first issue of The Illustrated London News. "Costing sixpence, the magazine had 16 pages and 32 woodcuts. It included pictures of the war in Afghanistan, a train crash in France, a steamboat explosion in Canada and a fancy dress ball at Buckingham Palace."
This was probably the first attempt to publish an illustrated news publication. The Illustrated London News continued as a weekly until 1971.
