The Toronto Evening Telegram Resurrected.

From the space between the basement ceiling and the kitchen floor, under the lowest scraps of lathe and plaster that had formed a kitchen wall for almost 80 years, I pulled a newspaper. The Toronto Evening Telegram, Saturday, March 3rd, 1934. Neighbours tell me that the Telegram was very British and conservative, the scraps that are still legible back them up, back then in 1934 Toronto was far more British and conservative. It's strange thinking of it tucked away in the dark for so many decades, hidden from the house, the city and the world beyond .
