Neighbours

Ok, mild technical issues this evening, so “This Week in Peterborough: 1913” will happen tomorrow.  However, in lieu of the post I wanted to share an amusing little piece that didn’t make it into the 1912 post.  It seems, in that year, that the newspaper in Lindsay was hosting a contest, and the editors of the Peterborough Examiner could not resist the opportunity to fire a small pot-shot at the nearby town:

Warder

Peterborough Examiner, July 5th, 1912.

I think we may consider it unlikely that the Examiner won the contest.

As noted, there will be a 1913 post along tomorrow evening!  As a bit of a spoiler — and speaking of neighbourhood rivalries  — you may wish to familiarize yourself with the above map of the Balkans at that time…
