Custodial history

Before their transfer to the Burlington Public Library, the records were in the custody of the Hamilton Spectator office at 44 Frid Street. In December 2020, when the Spectator moved to a new location on Hamilton Mountain, the collection was relocated to the Hamilton Public Library.

Scope and content

Material covers Burlington’s history as documented by the Hamilton Spectator covering local news from the late 20th century. The collection consists of a mix of newspaper clippings and positive print images on (usually) glossy photo paper. There are occasionally cropping marks and measurements in grease pencil on some of these images when they were used for publication.
