Newspapers 1909 1915

Hamilton Advertiser 1909

We have two interesting newspapers here with a selection of the contents to show you. The earlier one is the Hamilton Advertiser for December 18 1909 and the other is the Carluke Gazette for September 11th 1915. Please note that the images are fairly large and take a few seconds to open, so after clicking on the thumbnails, there will be a minor delay...  So lets get down to reviewing the contents, beginning with the Carluke and Lanark Gazette
