Conservation and Restoration of The Nor'Wester
Additional Information about The Nor'Wester :
The Nor'Wester is the first newspaper published in the Red River Settlement in Manitoba, starting in December 1859.
There are only three locations in Canada known to have a complete run of this newspaper: the Legislative Library of Manitoba, the University of Calgary, and l'Université de Montréal.
The very fragile state of the Library's copy required significant conservation and preservation work to be done by Dalley-Froggatt Heritage Conservation Services. This work included unbinding, cleaning and repairing the pages, and reinforcement of the damaged sections. All images of the work are courtesy of Dalley-Froggatt.
