I wrote about Bayswater synagogue installing electric lighting in 1894 in my previous post about this Jewish Chronicle volume. This time I will go through a selection of advertisements and announcements that are typical of the 1894 Jewish Chronicle.
In 1894, the London times newspaper carried paid announcements of births, marriages and deaths on the front page of the newspaper. There were no eye-catching headlines. The Jewish Chronicle followed the same format.
Here is the front page for Friday, September 28th, 1894:
Levy Brothers, of 31 Widegate Street, Bishopsgate, had been established as Matzo bakers for over 180 years, even in 1894. Their advertisement lacks the artwork that is available today, and relies on repetitive printing.
This is the donation list for an old-established charity, the Society for Providing Strangers with Meals on Sabbaths and Holydays. The distinguished list of donors includes donations collected by Reverend Bernard Spiers. I have previously written about his book, “The Threefold Cord” here.
One thought on “Jewish Chronicle 1894 – Advertisements and Announcements”
Really enjoyed your article. I worked at the J. C. for a short while in the 60’s.
