Carriers' Addresses:
New Year's Greetings


About this Site

This site is based on the work of Nancy Holloway, SLAS, Broadsides, John Hay Library, for an exhibition mounted in the Library. Digitized images of selected carriers' addresses have been used to illustrate the citations and Ms. Holloway's text.

The interested reader is encouraged to explore the holdings of carriers addresses at the John Hay Library, and further to examine a work compiled in great part by the retired curator of the Broadsides Collection, Mary T. Russo. The title is: A checklist of American newspaper carrier's addresses, 1720-1820. By Gerald D. McDonald, Stuart C. Sherman, and Mary T. Russo. (Worcester, MA : American Antiquarian Society, 2000).

The illustration used on the home page and as a detail on the section pages is the cover of the Daily Light Carriers Address. To Our Patrons. [s.l.] 1893.
