St. Catharines Standard / Niagara Falls Review Photo Collection

Historically, local newspapers have been a vital part of communities everywhere.  They encourage readers to be informed and active in local politics, business, and social events.  Newspapers provide unique opportunities for small businesses to advertise and showcase their specialties. And papers are employers themselves.  Newspapers are often a key pillar in strong and vibrant communities.

For generations, the St. Catharines Standard (since 1891) and the Niagara Falls Review (since 1873) have been providing the Niagara region with local, national, and global news and information.  

In 2022, Metroland Media Group, the owners of The Standard and The Review, donated the newspapers' extensive research archives to Brock University.  Over 120 metres of clippings, photographs, and other related documents are now housed in the Archives & Special Collections to bolster the other primary and secondary sources in the collection.  

This online exhibit highlights selections of photographs that appeared in both papers from 1909 to 2000.  Click on the menu icon at the top left of every page to see the date listings of the available photos for browsing or enter keywords into the search bar.  Enjoy!
