Historical newspapers are a useful source of information for understanding social and cultural trends during specific times. In the BC Historical Newspapers collection, we have digitized more than 53,000 newspaper issues from around the province, dating from 1859 to 1995. In this post, we compile a few advertisements from the collection dating from the First World War.

The Wrigley’s company placed several advertisements for its gum in The Daily News and The Cranbrook Herald. These ads encourage people to have gum after every meal, and to also buy some for the soldiers on the frontline.

These Wrigley ads are from The Daily News (Nelson), originally titled “The Nelson Daily Miner”, and The Cranbrook Herald. Renamed when it was purchased by F.J. Deane in April 1902, The Daily News changed hands again in May 1908 when it began to be printed by the News Publishing Co., managed by W.G. McMorris. The Cranbrook Herald was a weekly newspaper published in Cranbrook, BC, from 1898 to 1927.

Issue Resolved

Many of the China Academic Journals (CNKI) are showing a log-in window when trying to download the PDF (a red button with IP appears). This is a problem with their California server.

To get around this, try searching for the journal on their Qingdao server.

We are working on resolving this issue.
