The Nouvelle Chronique Almanac of 1915


One of the best resources for tracing the development of the commercial life of Jersey is the advertisements for businesses published over the decades. Newspaper adverts in the early 20th century tended to be small and lacking in detail, but the adverts placed in the almanac published annually by Evening Post, and in other trade directories, are much more informative. On this page we have a selection of these advertisements from 1905 to the 1960s and you will find hundreds of older advertisements on our page of 19th century Jersey business adverts.

The adverts on these pages, plus many others, can also be found on the appropriate Family pages, and our pages covering individual town streets and country roads in Jersey

We also have a separate page of Almanac and newspaper advertisements for private schools

It is noteworthy that, although the Nouvelle Chronique was a French language newspaper, their Almanac was probably purchased largely by English speakers and many of the advertisements were in English, often copies of those placed in the Evening Post Almanac - see below.
