Scope and content

Sidney and Islands Review, “Town Should Clean House”, 28 January 1915, Page 1.

“Town Should Clean House – Writer Urges Beautification Should Begin With Cleanliness.

Stand on the corner of Fifth Street and look cross the road, then go and stand on the corner of fourth street and look again. Look and look; then go up close and take a deep breath. Shades of Confucius! Surely something can be down about that? ….”
