The Town Crier Has Been Digitized

January 26, 2018

 

 

Thanks to the folks at the Seattle Public Library The Town Crier, a weekly published in early twentieth century Seattle, is now available to peruse online.

 

The Town Crier focused on the news, arts and culture of the Emerald City. It was published between 1910 and 1938 and featured work by and about local artists, musicians, photographers and actors. They also published reviews of local performances.

 

 

Think Edward Curtis, Mark Tobey, Imogene Cunningham and a look at Seattle during World War I, Prohibition, and the Great Depression.

 

 The digital collection is well produced and offers searching by issue and select topics.
