MHS Centennial Business: The Times (Treherne)

The first edition of the Treherne Times appeared on 6 October 1899 before Treherne was incorporated. But the population had increased after the arrival of the railway in 1886, and 15 new buildings had been erected in 1899. James Robson gave his stamp of approval to the new journal by declaring “Treherne Lumber Yard will always be up with the ‘Treherne Times’ the best paper.” After absorbing a number of other newspapers, it began operating as The Times from 1924.
