From the Liberty Hall newspaper, April 1811. #vintagenewspaper #vintageadvertising #historicalnewspapers #1811

Going through boxes of family pictures from the beginning of Photography until digital cameras. We’ve saved everything. In that trove is this newspaper from 100 years ago. 1917. The Montreal Daily Star on British advances in the western front. What a find.

A peek into some of our storage! These shelves contain years worth of Daily Iowans! The Daily Iowan is the University of Iowa's main student publication dating back to 1868. #uiowa #specialcollections #libraries #universityofiowa #dailyiowan #historicalnewspapers #iowahistory #archives

“The live and prosperous towns of Douglas City and Treadwell are certainly entitled to one good, wide-awake newspaper, and it will be our desire to supply this adjunct, that is so necessary to the upbuilding of cities, and whether, or not, we succeed in our efforts, we leave for you to judge.”

Yum! Today, #Prattmuseum staff are enjoying a cherry pie inspired by Collections Manager Savanna’s food and music research in 1959 Homer newspapers. Luckily, her personal collection of old cookbooks was close at hand! ..

Before there was #bitcoin there were just #bits !
...
The Iditarod Pioneer advertised single issues for sale for two bits from 1910-1915. Bits (12.5 cents) were used during the colonial period in the United States, but the term "bit" continued to be used to describe a quarter dollar into the 1900s.

Happy #mountainmonday from the October 1909 issue of The Thlinget featuring a photograph by E.W. Merrill of Sitka Harbor and her mountains.

"The summer is done, the winter is here and with the Prophet of old we exclaim "How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of Him that beareth glad tidings", for as He covereth the everlasting hills with snow like wool and in the deep valleys scattereth hoarfrost like ashes, thus wrapping securely, protectingly, in their winter sleep the growing things of earth..."

Prospecting is tough work, but it was even tougher for those tackling the harsh weather and dangerous terrain of the Alaskan frontier.

Now the one-armed rag and bone man.
WHITCHURCH, BUCKS I had my first hint that my 2x great grandfather Thomas Dickens (1827-1894) had only one arm when I read in the village church records that a one handed boy named T. Dickens had won a ploughing contest. Fast forward to these two stories from the Buckinghamshire Herald. The first one is from 1854 and is quite amusing. It never ceases to amaze me as to what passed for "news" in the day.
The second story; not so jolly. Dated 1869 Thomas has at this point 8 of the 12 children he and his wife will eventually have. They live in poverty, the home he inherited from his grandfather, Jonathan Rickard - a well off baker and brewer in Whitchurch, is mortgaged beyond use. He has borrowed money which he cannot repay and his wife must go and plead their case.
Other articles at various times in the Herald mention that the family is quite possibly responsible for an outbreak of smallpox in the village, that Thomas has been negligent in sending his children to school and that his donkey has been roaming the Oving Road. The fine was waived because of their poverty and his "numerous" family.
It would be interesting to find out one day how Thomas lost his arm.
I think checking old newspapers for our ancestors is an amazing way to add "flesh" to the bones. Even if your ancestor wasn't a famous person there may be a mention of them for some reason.
British Newspaper Archive is a fantastic source for research.

Have you ever wondered how some of the #mines around here got their names?
...
This fun article from The Daily Alaskan explains a few: "One of the best known mines in the southern hills is the Holy Terror. Back in the early days this claim was located by an old miner who had worked some years without success. The claim was a hard one to work. When the man went home in the evening after locating his claim his wife asked him what he named it. He smiled and told her, "For you, my dear," and her further inquiry drew forth the fact that he had called it Holy Terror."
...

Do you have any upcoming Labor Day plans?
...
We decided to use Chronicling America to search our historical digitized newspapers to see what was being said about #laborday in years past and came across this page of the Douglas Island News. It reads:
"Labor Day should receive even more recognition. It should be the day of all days in Alaska. More to us than the birthday of the nation that denies us the rights of the constitution. It means power and progress, and the triumph of that power that alone can bring success." -Sept. 5, 1900-
