Step back in time with paper feature
By David Zilstra
Leafing through old issues of theMinden Times and Haliburton County Echo is a wonderful way to step back in time, and learn about the rich history of Haliburton County. The Times, which started in its current format in 1980, and the Echo about 100 years earlier in 1884, are both time capsules of the progress that shaped our past, and brought us to the present, one week at a time.
I like to grab a complete year of our archives at a time, and start reviewing the pages from January right to the end of a particular year. Reviewing each paper from the same year enables you to jump back in time, and magically recreate that year through the pages of each issue. Here we give a rare glimpse of our past by reproducing a random set of front pages of both the Echo and Times newspapers. Starting this week and running for the next ten weeks we will reproduce a historical front page of both the Echo andTimes newspapers in each paper, and both pages in County Life.
The Echo and Times are proud to be the newspapers of record in our community, and we look forward to a bright future not only through the pages of our papers, but our social channels, websites and magazines like Summer Guide andProgress.
We hope you enjoy this step back in time and thank everyone for your continued support.
