The Ledge (Greenwood)

The oldest mining camp newspaper in British Columbia. ; The Ledge was published in Greenwood, in the Kootenay Boundary region of southern British Columbia. The Ledge was published by James W. Grier until 1907, and was subsequently published by R. T. Lowery (1907-1920) and G. W. A. Smith (1920-1929). The paper's longest-serving editor was R. T. Lowery (1906-1926), a prolific newspaper publisher, editor, and printer who was also widely acclaimed for his skill as a writer.
