Pennsylvania paper from 1902 preserved

Posted on February 7, 2011


We’ve always valued newspapers as historic documents. We found a glimpse of a newspaper from over 100 years ago. A 1902 copy of The Daily Local News from Chester County in Pennsylvania has been preserved and is being displayed at the local Masonic Lodge. Interestingly, one of the top stories is called “Women Won.” What did they win? Their fight to defeat saloons from obtaining liquor licenses. Oh, how times have changed.
