Adverts from the almanacs
The annual almanacs and trade directories published by Jersey newspapers in the 19th and early 20th centuries contain page after page of fascinating advertisements for businesses trading at the time. Few are still in business today. The advertisements in this gallery were taken from the British Press and Times and Nouvelle Chronique de Jersey almanacs.
The advertisements, and some of the products they promote, provide a fascinating insight into life over a century ago.
