advertisements 1916 and 1919 The New Era – Victoria Harbour newspaper


Community newspapers give a fascinating look into the daily life of the people who once lived in our communities.

Ads for trucks, tobacco, lye, wax to seal mason jars, seeds, clothing, and pain relievers.  Ads from companies seeking furs and cream.  Ads for the Barrie Fair and the Coldwater Fair.

from two catalogued copies of THE NEW ERA in the collection of the Huronia Museum in Midland. Special thanks to Jamie Hunter, Museum Director, who retires in December of this year. Photographs of the ads capturedby Bill Gibson of Victoria Harbour.  His late mother Elsa Gabrielson Gibson was born in the Harbour in 1916.

Copies of this newspaper are extremely rare.  If you have a copy, please consider donating it to the Huronia Museum collection.
