First major component added to our new site is the section on Old Newspapers.

From that page you can read pages from newspapers originally published 106 years ago.

Why newspapers from 106 years ago?

Well the days of the week of dates in 1910 correspond to the same days of the week in 2016.

So when the Gazette came out on a Thursday in 1910 we’re going to make that edition available on the same date in 2016: the August 25th 1910 edition came out on Aug 25 2016. The same for the Evening Sun which was published on Saturdays.

These particular newspapers are stored in the Community Archives in the basement of Grand Forks’ City Hall. We thank Sue Adrain for allowing us access to them.
