A bizarre ad from a 1947 edition of the Rossland Miner (the city was celebrating its 50th birthday, hence the need for faux facial hair). This newspaper and others, including the 1938 historical edition, were loaned to me by Greg Scott, recipient of Nelson’s heritage award for 2017. Scott in turn borrowed them from Nelson’s Ian Corner, whose father Jack was mayor of Rossland from 1946-51.
