The East Coast News

Am reading a book called "Southern India: Its History, People, Commerce, and Industrial" resources by Somerset Playne. One interesting find is that there was a newspaper --  The East Coast News -- printed in Vizagapatam.  I guess the date must be somewhere in the first decade of the 1900s, as the first edition of the book itself was printed in 1912.

Wonder if the archives of the newspaper can be found somewhere.
