Montreal: January 1916

One of the joys of creating my course for the Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) was working with Lise Noel, Archivist, Bell Historical Collection. Everyone in the class has had so much fun looking at both print and television advertising, as well as training pamphlets from past decades. I thought I would share some of these delightful tidbits with you.

So this week’s post is very simple – a Montreal newspaper ad for telephone communication which appeared in January 1916 (the underlines were not added by me). I delight in how the message remains true!

And my final words this week – a quote that took my breath away:

“Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.” Pablo Picasso
