  • Form 1927 to 1931 it went through many variations of its name including the Daily Telegraph News-Pictorial, Daily Telegraph Pictorial and Daily Pictorial.
  • In 1931, returned to a broadsheet format and original name, but kept news and headlines on its front page,
  • During the 1930s, it finally found a good balance between serious and sensational news, that saw it shake its instability and establish itself as Sydney's second major morning newspaper
  • Due to newsprint rationing during World War II, changed to a tabloid again in 1942.
  • Has since consolidated its position as Sydney's second newspaper, further strengthened by it being acquired by the Murdoch empire in the early 70s
