Local museum launching online exhibition about the Lindsay Post

By Lindsay Advocate

The Kawartha Lakes Museum & Archives is hosting a free evening event on March 28, 2024, to launch “Our History Through the Lindsay Post,” an online exhibition about the town’s former newspaper.

Over the last year, staff at KLMA has been busy digitizing Lindsay Post newspapers from 1900-1974 as well as over 3,000 negatives from one of its editors, Alan Capon. This event will take visitors on a journey through the evolution of our town’s newspaper business, spotlighting the exceptional work of Alan Roy Capon, a renowned photographer and editor at the Lindsay Post during the 1960s. In addition to viewing the exhibit, visitors can enjoy food and refreshments, a walk-through photo exhibit featuring significant cultural moments of Kawartha Lakes from the 1960s, live demonstrations of how to access the digitized newspapers online, an opportunity for photos, a chance to meet project staff, as well as a temporary display of artifacts and records from Lindsay’s journalistic past.

This event gets underway at the museum (50 Victoria Avenue North) on Thursday, March 28, and runs from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., with remarks at 5:30 p.m. For more information, visit klmuseumarchives.ca/lindsay-post, write to , or telephone (705) 324-3404.
