Smith's Weekly was primarily an illustrated broadsheet newspaper carrying whole pages of cartoons, political comment and comic strips. It was named after and initially funded by Sir James Joynton Smith (1858-1943), an Englishman who became lord mayor of Sydney. For much of its life Smith's Weekly was also regarded as 'the Digger's newspaper'. During the 1920s and 1930s it became a leading advocate for the welfare of returned servicemen and women, and throughout its life it ran a regular page of news, correspondence and other items intended for Diggers. This continued in the years following World War II.
