Scope and content
Vol. 49, No. 13,514 (June 17, 1893) of the Saturday Globe. The feature article “Edmonton and the Saskatchewan Valley” provides a description of Edmonton and the surrounding environs. As the municipality was still small at the time of writing, much of the content revolves around rural living; however, there is still an in-depth exploration of major Edmonton landmarks and businesses. Accompanying photographs depict both landscapes and scenery outside Edmonton, as well as major buildings within the municipality.
The Globe newspaper, to which the Saturday Globe was a supplement, is bound to the back of the supplement. However, the parent newspaper does not appear to carry substantive content on the Prairie Provinces. Both the supplement and its parent newspaper carry, in addition to articles and editorials, a number of advertisements for products and businesses.
Item is very delicate – handle with care.
