The Leader was a weekly newspaper in Melbourne and came out on Saturday. It was a “companion weekly” to the daily newspaper The Age, and was edited by David Syme‘s brother George Syme. Its first issue was released in February 1855, under the title “The Weekly Age”. Like many other newspapers (The Bendigo Independent also) it disappeared at the end of the WW1.
For nearly three years Bert’s sketches were prominent on Page 33 of the Saturday Leader.
