The Ladysmith Daily Ledger
The Ladysmith Daily Ledger was published in Ladysmith, in the Cowichan Valley region of Vancouver Island, and ran from July 1903 to December 1906. Ladysmith developed as a residential area for the employees of a large coal mine, and, in 1904, it had a population of approximately 4000. The Ledger was published by the Ladysmith Publishing Company, which also issued the paper under two variant titles: the Daily Ledger (April to July, 1905) and the Ladysmith Ledger (September to December, 1906).
