About This Item

Toronto: Ryerson Press, 1949. 289 pp, 8 3/4" H. B&w plates. "(T)he story of Southwestern Ontario as reflected in the columns of 'The London Free Press' for the last hundred years. By its very nature a newspaper is a diary of the times, a mirror held to the contemporary scene in its various aspects - local, national and international. Orlo Miller, a former staff member of (the paper), having spent several years in research, here presents a lively and readable account of what has taken place in the last ten decades. Here is no collection of dry statistical data but rather real, living, flesh-and-blood people taking part in historic incidents as reavealed in the yellowed columns. The growth of London from a struggling backwoods village to the metropolis of the smiling countryside of Western Ontario and the parallel expansion of 'The London Free Press' from a tiny weekly, struggling for survival, to one of Canada's leading daily newspapers form the twin themes from which Orlo Miller has skilfully spun a single story." Light wrinkling and light fading (1/4") at bottom of spine, very light fading to spine color. Dust jacket has light to moderate edge wear/wrinkling, small piece missing at top of spine, a few tiny and small edge chips, light rubbing/soiling, old tape at inside top/bottom edges, faint water stain at bottom of spine. . First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Good-.
