12 Days of Memories: Ads over the decades

Day 12: Advertising, plus a “Mayor of Fenwick” (old-timey edition) bonus

For our last entry in 12 Days of Memories, a journey through the archives of the Voice and Pelham Herald, we take a look at what makes newspapers possible: the businesses that support them through advertising. The majority of these businesses are no longer with us, but a couple have hung in there. Wrapping it up in Technicolour, a fetching couple from Fenwick’s 150th birthday party.

We hope you’ve enjoyed this brief bit of holiday time-travel as much as we did poking through the archives to bring it to you.

May your 2018 be healthy and happy.
