With the help of the University of British Columbia Library’s Digital Initiatives we will be providing a glimpse into our past by occasionally publishing pages from the old Abbotsford Post.
*The Abbotsford Post was published in Abbotsford, in the Fraser Valley from 1910 to 1924. The Post was published and edited by John Alexander Bates, and it was the first paper targeted specifically at the Abbotsford area. The paper has since been bought and sold a number of times.
A more recent version of the Abbotsford Post, owned by Corvus Publishing was published in 2005 and 2006 before being purchased by Canwest and shut down several weeks later.
The snapshots of our past we feature in this section are from the years 1910-1924.
*Pages from the old Abbotsford Post are from the Historical Newspapers site at UBC library and the
reproductions are made possible by UBC Library.
