Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 13/07/2012 (3906 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.
The Brandon Sun published five weeks of feature articles detailing the history of the Prince Edward Hotel, from its pre-1912 construction through its heyday and decline, evental demoltion and ending with the lot’s current use as a skateboard plaza.
Each article was laid out on the page in a way that somewhat echoed newspaper layout and design at the time.
Of course, modern computer programs were used, which can’t always replicate the hand-made look and feel of a century-old newspaper. Nor would that be desirable — these features included many more photos and better reproduction than newspaper even a couple of decades ago could have hoped for.
Although extensive additional information was included online, there is something to be said for the physical page.
The following PDF, which can be viewed below or dowloaded here, collects all five weeks of feature articles as they originally appeared in the Brandon Sun, ads and all.
An e-book, which will include even more stories from the hotel, is in the works.
