The Fernie Ledger

Description

The Nakusp Ledge was published in Nakusp, in the Central Kootenay region of southeastern British Columbia, from October 1893 to December 1894. The paper was subsequently published as the Ledge both in New Denver, from December 1894 to December 1904, and in Fernie, from January to August 1905. The Ledge was published by Robert Thornton Lowery, a prolific newspaper publisher, editor, and printer who was also widely acclaimed for his skill as a writer. After moving to Fernie, the paper continued to be published under variant titles, including the Fernie Ledger and the District Ledger, from August 1905 to August 1919.
