Evening times star (Saint John, N.B.) for 2 May 1910 to 15 January 1927, That’s a run of 2,177 issues with a few issues missing from the paper’s launch and, no doubt, gaps internally.
Union Publishing Co.’s farmers’ and business directory for the counties of Carleton, Dundas, Glengarry, Grenville, Lanark, Prescott, Russell and Stormont, for 1894. There are now 9 issues from 1885 to 1899. The is a good source for finding rural land lot and concession numbers.
