Evening Telegram, 1879-1899
Evening Telegram. Published St. John's N.L. 1879-present
Although the Evening Telegram was not the country's first daily newspaper, it was by far the most successful. The end of the 19th century saw the last of the Newfoundland newspapers which had started between 1827 and 1833 -- the Newfoundlander, the Public Ledger, the Patriot, and the Times. The Evening Telegram was the first of the three major daily newspapers which replaced the old guard and continued into the 20th century.
During the First World War, the Evening Telegram was read throughout Newfoundland for all manner of home front and war news.
