Early issues of Venice Gondolier now available online


A collaborative effort between the Venice Division of Historical Resources and the Venice Gondolier newspaper in Florida has resulted in editions dating back to the paper’s founding in 1946 available online at: https://veniceflmuseum.newspaperarchive.com/

Guest columnist Larry Humes, who writes about local history, noted in a recent column in the paper that the collection currently spans from the Gondolier’s inaugural edition on March 6, 1946, to December 1967. Additional editions will be added annually until the collection extends to 2003, when the newspaper became available electronically. Those editions are available through the Gondolier’s website at: www.yoursun.com.

He said, "The digitization project began when the newspaper and its parent company, Adams Publishing Group, made the original hard-bound copies available to VHR staff. After the editions were inspected and cleaned, World Archives microfilmed, scanned and uploaded more than 22,000 pages to their website. The pages can be browsed by date or through key word searches."
